ACS DFW Science Advocacy Workshop

Tuesday, November 13, 2018

Refreshments at 5:30, Program at 6 pm

University of Texas Arlington, CRB 114

In the words of ACS Past-President Katie Hunt:

“Chemistry is at a crossroads.  Globalization is upon us, and there is no turning back.  Our challenge is how to keep our nation strong in an increasingly global marketplace.  Strengthening the roots of American innovation and competitiveness—education, basic research, and a business environment to drive innovation—is how we as a nation will meet this challenge.”

This is the message that the ACS DFW Local Section can bring to Congress and to the Texas Legislature.

The 2018 elections are over and the time for advocacy is now.  Make plans to attend this workshop and learn from ACS National as well as local leaders about:

  • ACS Policy Statements
  • ACS Resources for Advocacy including Act4Chemistry, Twitter, and the Advocacy Toolkit
  • How to Contact and/or Prepare for a Meeting with Legislators
  • What to Expect in 2019 Texas Legislative Session re: Science
  • How to Get More Involved in Advocacy
