Subject: [All] NCEAS Communications Mixer Round 2 – Friday Aug 24

From: Kristen Weiss

Hi NCEASers!

It’s been awhile since our first NCEAS Communications mixer, so we thought we’d host an end-of-summer mixer next Friday, Aug 24th!

This time around, the NCEAS comms staff will be hosting unofficial “office hours” – we want to hear your questions, ideas, suggestions, and random thoughts about science communication at NCEAS and beyond. Each of the comms staff in attendance will give a super brief summary of what our jobs entail (for those of you secretly wondering ‘what do those communicator people do all day??’), then open it up for mingling and discussion.

Like last time, come for the drinks and incredible balcony view – stay for the great conversations! Plus it’s a chance to hang out with Jenny before she heads back to Madison for the Fall.


Date/Location: Friday, August 24th, starting at 4:30pm on the 6th floor balcony, Balboa Building

Logistics: Please BYOB (we will have some drinks/snacks available but please bring your faves if you can to make sure there’s enough to go around)

Reason you should come: Because what could be a better way to spend a Friday afternoon than mingling with your awesome NCEAS colleagues and talking about how to raise the profile of awesome science??

P.S. The Sandbox is hosting a ‘Stories of the Sea’ event that same night starting at 7pm. Tickets are only $7 and the lineup looks super interesting, for anyone who wants to head over to this after our mixer.
