LTER Sponsors Webinar to Help Scientists Engage in Public Policy

Opportunity Type: 
Training

A new online presentation sponsored by the LTER Network aims to inform scientists about how to engage in public policy. The webinar, presented as part of the 4th Annual Biological Sciences Congressional District Visits event, features information on the federal budget process, pending congressional appropriations bills that would fund biological research in fiscal year 2013, and tips for effective communication with lawmakers.

The webinar was presented by policy staff from the American Institute of Biological Sciences (AIBS) to participants of the 4th Annual Biological Sciences Congressional District Visits event. The LTER Network is a sponsor of the event, which will take place throughout the month of August 2012. This nationwide event was developed to encourage scientists to meet with their elected officials in order to showcase the people, equipment, and facilities that are required to support and conduct scientific research.

As a sponsor of this event, the LTER Network is able to offer our members access to a recording of this webinar program until September 9, 2012. The webinar can be viewed for free at http://www.aibs.org/events/webinar/archived/Congressional_Visits/congres....
