The Science Network Workshop Series
Please join the Science Network for one of the workshops listed below. These sessions are part of a series offered to Science Network members to provide training opportunities to strengthen your communication and advocacy skills. There are three different levels of workshops that might appeal to you: introductory (101), advanced (202), and early career scientist (ECS).
The Role of Scientists on Advisory Committees
Tuesday, March 8 3:00-4:00pm EST
What are advisory committees? They exist to provide advice that is relevant, objective, and open to the public and government officials. With the expertise from advisory committee members, officials and policy makers have access to information and advice on a broad range of issues affecting policies and programs. Scientists and technical experts from all occupational backgrounds have valuable expertise to provide to these committees.
Join us for a webinar to learn about local, state, and federal advisory committees—what they are, what they entail, how to be nominated, and how they influence policy and regulations. Our speakers, Dr. Andrew Rosenberg, director of the Center for Science and Democracy at the Union of Concerned Scientists, and Dr. Richard Ezike, transportation fellow at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, will speak about their experiences working with and on advisory committees, and how to get started if you are interested in joining a committee.
