Event: ASC Victoria end of year party and AGM

Show off your science at the ASC Victoria end of year party and AGM. Put the party appropriate night of Monday 24 November in your calendars for an evening of networking, pizza eating, drinking and general celebrations!

‘Science Show-off’ is your chance to show the Victorian science communication community something, weird, funny, quirky, musical or cunning… show us your own science, or your skills at communicating the science of others.

The theme for the show-off will be ‘The Science of 2014’ and your show-off must be less than 5min. Numbers are limited so send your ideas through to sallylowenstein@gmail.com to ensure a place in the line-up.

And if you’d like to contribute to our local science communication community in a less frivolous way… we’ll also be holding our AGM during the night.

Please arrive by 6:30pm to have your say on our activities and direction over the next year, and consider nominating for one of the committee positions (more below).

If you can’t make it on the night do send along a proxy so your voice is heard.

Your ASC committee will provide delicious food platters and you can purchase drinks at the bar.

The event is FREE for ASC Members ($10 for others) but we can help you sign-up on the night.
