Irvine Membership Meeting – Help Build Postdocs’ Public Voice @ NS II 4206
Jun 22 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

As the March for Science showed, scientists are ready to fight back against threats to science funding, climate change, immigration and many other critical issues. We would like to invite you for a brainstorming session to make plans on how to build on the momentum in the coming weeks and months.

We received lots of great feedback from our recent survey about Postdoc priorities – thanks for all suggestions! Today’s meeting will focus on how we can turn those priorities into an action plan to advocate for policies and elected leadership that will represent the best interests of Postdocs and the broader community.

Lunch will be provided.
