Dear Colleagues
  Science and Technology Australia (STA) are again organising Science meets
Parliament in 2023. This year the event will be in two parts:

1) a three-day online program (March 7, 8 and 9) of bespoke training to
equip scientists with advanced skills in policy engagement, communications,
advocacy and influence; and
2) a ‘Science Meets Parliament 2023: On The Hill” one-day in-person event
in Canberra (March 22) featuring a National Press Club address, National
Gala Dinner in the Great Hall of Parliament, scientist meetings with MPs
and Senators, an exhibition and advanced training.

The ASA is a member of STA and we are looking for 2 ASA delegates, with
costs covered by the ASA.

We are thus asking for volunteers to attend this meeting. If you are
interested, please send me a brief summary of why you are the best person
to represent the ASA and your colleagues to parliamentarians.

Please send me your nominations before Feb 15.

Further information on SmP is available here

Best wishes
John Lattanzio
