As part of the launch of our brand new community of practice for scientific community managers, you’re warmly invited to join our first community call this Wednesday, 30th October at 2pm Eastern (11am Pacific, 6pm GMT – note that the clocks went back in the UK this past weekend).
What’s a community call?
A community call is a regular online event for community members to come together and meet one another, discuss topics of shared interest, and learn new things. Calls might include individual presentations, guest speakers, celebrating successes or diving deeper to brainstorm a particular topic in more detail.
We’ll be hosting a community call once per month on the third Wednesday of every month, but to kick things off this month we’ll be meeting on Wednesday 30th October.
This month’s abstract
Topic: An introduction to the work of CSCCE and nurturing a community of practice (CoP) for scientific community engagement professionals.
Abstract: In our inaugural CSCCE community call, CSCCE Director Lou Woodley will give a brief overview of the activities of the Center and lead a discussion about what a community of practice for scientific community engagement managers could look like. We’ll discuss details of the new Slack group, the creation of community profiles and more.
Please bring questions and suggestions for a rich discussion. If you plan to join, we recommend requesting an invite to the Slack group ahead of time so that you can join the back channel conversations there (link to come). All welcome!
