Nominations for the ABSW Executive Board are now open until 17:00 on Wednesday 1 March. All posts on the Executive Board come up for election each year with those elected taking up office immediately after the AGM (30 March 2017).
The posts available are President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer (who are also Directors of the company, as the ABSW is a Company Limited by Guarantee) and a European Representative (who may be the President), plus up to seven other general members.
The opportunity of a spare place on the EUSJA trip to Berlin for Science Week and the Falling Walls conference came up with less than 24 hours' notice, which is why I was sent to take advantage.
The trip included around 20 journalists from across Europe: I spotted people from Spain, Finland, Russia, and Estonia on the first day, when we were given a tour of three of Berlin's scientific establishments.
Are you an aspiring science journalist? If so, would you like some free bespoke careers advice from journalists in the national media?
If your answer is “Yes!” to both questions, then you cannot afford to miss an exclusive event organised by the Association of British Science Writers on Wednesday 2 November.
After consulting members and discussion on the ABSW email discussion list the following submission has been made on behalf of the ABSW to the Science and Technology Committee science communication inquiry.
