Lots of Opportunities

Here at New Voices we're always encouraging people to get out there and actively engage in communication and advocacy, and today we've got a couple different ways for you to get engaged, learn something, help us learn something, and maybe earn yourself a scholarship.

SEA Workshop on Fundraising
This workshop features expert fundraisers of national, local, and online campaigns from across the political spectrum. Presentations will revisit the theme of our July workshop: presenting a clear, focused message to the press and the public, but this time, within the context of both offline and online fundraising activities.

Fundraising experts from Campaign Advantage, Rep. Rush Holt campaigns, Campaign Solutions, and ActBlue will review strategies, and offer advice for members of the scientific community who are considering candidacy for public office.

Date: Saturday, October 24, 2009
Time: 1:00 PM EST – 4:00 PM EST
DC Location: ACS Othmer Building 1550 M Street NW
Online streaming video
Virtual attendees can participate in the Q&A session through an online chat room.
Access codes to the chat room will be emailed to those who register.

Global Health Essay Competition
The CSIS Commission on Smart Global Health is seeking essay submissions that answer the following question in 500-800 words by midnight, November 20th 2009:
"What is the most important thing the U.S. can do to improve global health over the next 15 years?"
The CSIS Commission on Smart Global Health Policy focuses on practical solutions that maximize efficiency, produce measurable results, and engage the American public. They are looking for fresh, innovative approaches to global health problems. The author of the winning essay will receive a $1,000 scholarship with a chance to be published in the Commission's final report. Complete details are available here.

New Voices Scientist Survey
Take the scientist survey and/or share it with your friends today! Thank you to everyone who has reached out and helped so far, we are more than half way to our total response goal, but still need a couple dozen responses to close out the survey. For it to be truly representative, we need our male and minority readers especially to respond as soon as possible! Each response helps, so take 10 minutes today!

You can read all the details about the survey here.
