ASC Corporate Members

The ASC now has five corporate members which is an increase on last year. I welcome the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO), the Powerhouse Museum (NSW), Scitech (WA), the CSIRO Energy Group, and one other CSIRO group of communicators.

Each corporate member nominates 10 people as part of their membership group and designates one of these people as their voting delegate.

I will encourage our corporate members to talk about their particular science communication challenges. Grappling to explain a challenge may help to clarify it, and sharing it with the membership may provide useful feedback and insights into corporate science communication.

The corporate members bring new members to the ASC, which in turn offers value to all concerned. It’s great to have them on board and I look forward to hearing about their collective corporate thoughts.
