Each year, the American Institute of Biological Sciences (AIBS) organizes an opportunity for scientists to inform the nation’s science policy. The Biological Sciences Congressional District Visits event enables scientists to meet with their federal or state elected officials in their home state – not in Washington, DC – and allows policymakers to learn first-hand about the science and research facilities in their district.
AIBS offers this professional development program designed to help scientists, including graduate students, hone their written communication skills to increase the impact and influence of their message.
Join the American Institute of Biological Sciences on April 19-23, 2021 for our Virtual Advocacy Event.
AIBS offers this workshop to help the science community learn how to engage and inform decision-makers and have the opportunity to become effective and engaged communicators.
This intensive, two-day, interactive professional development course is designed by scientists and experts on collaboration and teamwork to provide participants with the knowledge and skills required to become productive and effective members of scientific teams.
We invite the Biological Collections community at-large to join the American Institute of Biological Sciences, Natural Science Collections Alliance, and Society for the Preservation of Natural History Collections for a joint discussion with the Biodiversity Collections Network and the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine on the future of biological collections.
