ComSciCon-Cornell needs you

We are looking for a group of BESTies to serve on the 2018-2019 Organizing Committee for ComSciCon-Cornell, a two-day science communication workshop serving STEM graduate students and postdoctoral researchers in the Central & Western New York area. The goal of the workshop is to empower future leaders in technical communication to share the results from research in their field to broad and diverse audiences (e.g. friends, family, and policymakers) not just practitioners in their fields. Attendees of the workshop interact with professional communicators (scientists, policymakers, and influential leaders from the local community), build lasting networks with graduate students in all fields of science and engineering, and write and publish original works.
