This summer, the American Institute of Biological Sciences will help dozens

of scientists around the country meet with their elected officials. Will

As part of this nationwide initiative, we are targeting certain members of

the U.S. House of Representatives. If you do not live in one of our high

priority districts, you will be able to meet with one of your state



We need your help to make this event a success! Please consider

participating in the event or sharing this information with a colleague.


Participants commit to meeting with one of their elected officials or their

staff. Participants will be prepared for their meeting with a lawmaker

through an interactive training webinar that will present tips for

conducting a successful meeting with an elected official, training to

improve communication skills, and information about federal funding for

biological research.


The meeting with your elected official will be scheduled by AIBS and can

take place at a research facility or the official’s district office.


Participation is free, but registration will close on 13 July 2014.
