The American Institute of Biological Sciences (AIBS) is pleased to announce a new membership benefit: Press Relations.
The AIBS Public Policy Office is a national leader in communicating science to target audiences. In addition to offering training workshops that help scientists and educators develop the skills to communicate with elected officials and the news media, the Public Policy Office is now able to assist AIBS Member Societies and Organizations with news media relations. Participating AIBS Member Societies and Organizations can receive assistance in developing news releases and press conferences, targeting appropriate media outlets, issuing a news release on state, regional, national or international wire services, and a summary report of the coverage your release receives.
AIBS Member Societies and Organizations may access this new benefit on a fee-for-service basis. Substantial discounts are available to members that are "Participant" level or higher contributors to the AIBS Public Policy Office.
Please contact AIBS Director of Public Policy Dr. Robert Gropp at rgr...@aibs.org or 202-628-1500 x 250, to learn more about how AIBS can assist your organization with developing a media relations program, issuing a news release, or planning a press conference.
