Patton R. 2001. A summary of the role of The American Registry Professional Animal Scientists. In Edwards M, Lisi KJ, Schlegel ML, Bray RE, Eds., Proceedings of the Fourth Conference on Zoo and Wildlife Nutrition, AZA Nutrition Advisory Group, Lake Buena Vista, FL.
The American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists (ARPAS) is a body that promotes the professionalism of its animal scientists members. Workers in several fields can apply to have their credentials and experience recognized by their peers. After 10 years of different embodiments and halting progress, ARPAS was launched in 1984, operating without a loss in any year since. Sustaining societies are American Society of Animal Science, American Dairy Science Association, Poultry Science Association, American Meat Science Association, and Equine Nutrition and Physiology Society. It is not necessary to be a member of one of these societies, and there are no formal education requirements for general membership.Patton-Role Of The American Registry Of Professional Animal Scientists.pdf     298 KB
