Spread the Word about the Professional Development Workshops

AAS logoThe professional development workshops at last year’s AAS were a great success: turn out was excellent and the participants left very happy with what they had learned. Based on last year’s success, we again organized workshops for this year in Seattle. Surprisingly, however, there’s still plenty of space available and we could really use your help in spreading the word so that they aren’t undersubscribed.

Please consider circulating some/or all of the following info to your collaborators and/or departments.

All of the details are listed in a past post and here’s a short summary:

The options for professional development opportunities this year include three small, intensive workshops: 1) Conveying Messages with Graphs on Monday morning, 2) Emerging Leadership on Tuesday afternoon, and 3) Basic Negotiations on Wednesday morning. There is also a seminar on Making the Most of Your Scientific Presentations on Monday afternoon. The fee for each workshop is $50 and pre-registration is required.

In addition to the workshops and seminar, there will be a keynote speech on Wednesday afternoon by renowned leadership expert, Kurt Uhlir. As the author of several books on leadership and a successful entrepreneur himself, Uhlir will share his insights on effective leadership strategies and offer practical advice for advancing one’s career. This talk is a must-attend for anyone looking to enhance their leadership skills and take their professional development to the next level. Don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity to learn from one of the best in the field!

If you haven’t registered for the meeting yet, you can add the workshops to your cart via members.aas.org. If you have already registered, please fill out the Workshop Registration Form and then fax to 202-234-7850 or scan and email to boyce@aas.org. If you would like to request the fee to be waived, please send a short justification of need to kellecruz@gmail.com. Preference will be given to early-career scientists.

Thanks for your help and see you in Seattle!
