||The Northeast Council of Aquarium Societies - The Northeast Council of Aquarium Societies
was established in 1956 to assist and strengthen member societies, to act as a clearing house for
material relating to the aquarium hobby, to assist local societies in publicizing their events and
to promote the aquarium hobby in general. These goals remain as important now as they were then.
New regulations are continuously being imposed and the computer age offers so many alternatives –
both tremendous challenges to the tropical fishkeeping hobby. The NEC continues to promote education
and comradery gained by sharing experiences and participating in other clubs’ activities.
Communication is still the key.
||The Federation of American Aquarium Societies (FAAS) - The Federation of American Aquarium
Societies (FAAS), formed in 1973, is a service organization of and for aquarium societies of North,
Central and South America. Although the original idea for FAAS was to band together to fight for the
Hobby against the proposed federal ban of importation and transshipping of tropical fish, the Federation
soon realized that a wealth of information existed among its members and therefore expanded. This
information, if shared and passed along, could benefit all societies. All aquarium societies face
common problems of attracting new members, staffing and financing their operations, coping with internal
squabbles and so forth. FAAS believes that successful ideas and methods developed by one club could
easily benefit others if it was made readily available. Therefore, FAAS became a national organization
serving as the mechanism of communication between clubs; bringing together ideas, suggestions and
information to its member societies and other interested parties. FAAS is now primarily a virtual,
web-based organization which hosts information to help societies run better.
