Dear Faculty, Post-docs, and Graduate Students,
Will you be attending the 2018 meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) which will take place in Austin on February 15-18? If you will or might attend, please read on:
You are cordially invited to attend a pre-meeting on February 9, 2018, at 4:30 VIDI 102 to talk about how to make the most of your time at the AAAS conference. Refreshments will be provided.
AAAS is a great meeting for those interested in multidisciplinary science, science advocacy, science policy, and popular communication of science. It is also an opportunity to become an active member and perhaps eventually a Fellow, which is a prestigious honorific. This is an excellent opportunity for us at TAMU. It’s practical, low cost, an easy drive from College Station, and a good professional development opportunity.
Graduate students and post-docs are particularly encouraged to attend this pre-meeting. Any faculty who can come as mentors would be very much appreciated.
At the pre-meeting, a panel will discuss:
- Why the AAAS is interesting and can be important for your career;
- How to join one of the 24 specialty sections and eventually qualify to become a fellow.
Discounted early-bird registration rates for the AAAS conference are available through January 24, 2018. Non-members can also take advantage of a discounted rate to become AAAS members and to register for the meeting. Visit https://www.aaas.org/. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm your attendance and help us plan for the February event here on campus.
