#ESA100 SciComm Socializing

Next week’s theme: mmixxx, mix, mix, and mingle!

If you aim to connect with fellow SciComm buffs and advocates, you will have loads of opportunities at #ESA100. Of course, there’s the SciComm Section workshop, “Communicating Science Vividly.” We’re also curating a list of SciComm-related activities being held throughout the annual meeting. And on an informal note, there are a few SciComm-specific social sessions lined up.

Here are those socializing-specific highlights:

  • SciComm Section Business meeting: Monday, August 10, 2015: 6:30 PM; Stone, Hilton
  • Joint mixer with Policy Section: Mixer will follow business meeting and will be held at Alewife; 21 N Eutaw St; 410.545.5112. If you’re at the business meeting, we’ll all plan to walk over to the mixer location as a group.
  • Happy Hour with ESA Communications Team and DC Science Writers Association: The DC Science Writers Association and ESA Comm Team have invited us to join their happy hour. Tuesday, August 11, 2015; 6:00-8:00 PM at Peter’s Pour House; 111 Mercer Street, Baltimore, MD 21202 (Corner of Water & Grant Streets) MAP.
