Get Involved with the ASN!

Posted on by Kathleen Donohue, Presdient

We had a great conference in Portland!  It was wonderful to see such innovative research and energetic participation.  What a fun community!  Look out for the stand-alone meeting in Asilomar, which will celebrate 150 years of the American Society of Naturalists!  
 
ASN wants to involve its membership in its activities!  Here are some ways you could be involved:
 
Science advocacy:  
If you think it is a good idea for ASN to establish a committee for science advocacy, let us know!  If you yourself would be interested in being involved in that committee, even better. Let us know your ideas and interest by sending an e-mail, with the header “Science Advocacy” to asnpresident@gmail.com.
 
Diversity:
If you have ideas for how ASN could promote diversity, and if you are interested in serving on an ASN Diversity Committee, let us know your ideas and interest by sending an e-mail, with the header “Diversity” to asnpresident@gmail.com.
                          
Regional Meetings and Workshops:
ASN supports local regional meetings and special workshops through travel grants, registration discounts, etc.  If you are interested in serving on the “Regional Meeting Liaison Committee” or the “Workshop Committee” to facilitate the sponsorship of these events, let us know your ideas and interest by sending an e-mail, with the header “Workshops” to asnpresident@gmail.com.
