“When we all vote, we determine our future.” -Michelle Obama
500 Women Scientists has launched our Get Out the Vote initiative for the U.S. midterm elections, but voting for leadership of our scientific societies matters too. Society leaders shape the priorities and values of organizations for years to come.
Today, we ask you to take 5 minutes to check when your scientific society holds its next elections and make plans to vote. Or take it a step further and consider how you can get involved in your society’s leadership.
As the Earth and space science community prepares for the AGU 2018 Fall meeting, AGU elections are just around the corner. All AGU members (past and present), make sure your AGU membership is up to date and vote for the leadership of your scientific society between August 27th through September 25th.
Let us know in the comments or on twitter about scientific society elections and how you’re getting involved.
