Membership in the PSA Hatchery shall consist of undergraduate students, graduate students, and post-graduate students. The Hatchery has two Student Directors, elected at the PSA Hatchery Annual Meeting, who have alternating two-year terms of service. The Student Directors each serve a two-year term on the Poultry Science Association Board of Directors. Their duties are to represent the student interests on the Board and to facilitate student planning on educational and student activities
The Poultry Science Association Hatchery involvement is divided into 4 main categories for structural purposes. These include general membership, University Ambassadors, Regional Directors, and Student Directors. Ambassador and Director positions were established in order to aid in the dissemination of information about conferences, scholarships, fellowships, and other items pertaining specifically to students.
In order to further aid the mission statement of the Hatchery, along with increasing transparency and communication, a few new platforms have been added by PSA and the student directors. This includes a hatchery specific email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to directly communicate with Hatchery Student Directors, a comprehensive google drive to store Hatchery and University information, and this website! PSA has also launched a "career center" to help students and others find jobs in the field of poultry science. This resource can be found under the "student opportunities" tab.
