Increasing Division/Student Engagement at National Meetings
At the DAC Executive Committee Meeting held in January, we discussed ways for divisions to more fully engage students. During the San Diego Meeting, DAC members will make it a priority to tour student poster sessions. In addition, we have arranged for a photographer to offer to take photos of students as they stand alongside their posters (strictly voluntary on the part of the students, of course). We'll distribute the digital photos to the students using social media tools.
This is the 75th Anniversary of student members and a perfect opportunity to enhance networking opportunities for them.
If you have time, please make a student happy by touring the CHED poster session on Monday, March 26 from 12 noon – 2:30 PM, in the Convention Center Hall D. Please see ACS staff in the front of the room who will direct you to the posters of interest to you.
If you would like a photographer to attend a poster session your division is hosting, please reply to April Orr at firstname.lastname@example.org. We have a limited amount of photographer time, so requests will be honored on a 'first come, first serve' basis. In any event, the deadline to make a request is March 2.
Looking for a way to get your Division noticed? What about offering a division sticker to be used on poster carrying cases? Students and other presenters would show their pride of a Division Affiliation and let the world know about it. Need help getting this accomplished? Please contact April Orr at email@example.com.
