From Rod Lamberts, ASC National President …
The commencement of 2013 has been filled with a flurry of activity for me, most of which involves getting my head around the nuances of the presidential seat.
The start of the year has also marked the start of some exciting initiatives for the Australian Science Communicators, some of which I can reveal here.
First, we are working away in the background to prepare our advertising campaign for the General Manager Position. Of course, once this is ready, information will flow through the ASC list, website and all our other communication channels.
Second, both thanks to and in concert with Jesse, I have been injected into the Inspiring Australia conversations on behalf of the ASC. There are many wonderful opportunities in this partnership and I look forward to exploring them more.
I am also hoping to announce two Vice Presidents soon. Of course, I need to make sure the people I’ve spoken with are still keen before naming names and labels!
And finally, I’m in the midst of planning a way to progress the development of the the ASC code of conduct.
Many exciting initiatives are slowly taking shape as I dust out the cobwebs of 2012 and begin to lurch properly into 2013.
I appreciate any feedback, thoughts or comments on any of these initiatives.
