One of the main requests members made in the 2015 section planning survey was networking and mentorship support and opportunities.
We’re looking for volunteers willing to be at our booth to help us meet these objectives.
Volunteers will respond to career and career-transition questions and generally represent the diversity of possible SciComm careers already pursued by ESA members.
Section officers will be present to answer questions about the section itself.
Please contact us directly if you are willing to volunteer for one or more of these sessions. And if you have ideas and suggestions, please let us know!
