At the ACS meeting last week, Rudy attended a session called the “Task Force on Enhancing Innovation & Competitiveness: A Hearing to Gather Input for the Final Report.”
Says Rudy in his editorial: “The panels discussed a number of practical issues and concerns surrounding advocacy for science and technology, but all agreed that to remain relevant in the public policy arena scientists need to continue to make their voices heard strongly and clearly on Capitol Hill.”
The folks at the ACS Office of Policy and Legislative Affairs even put together a training video on how to effectively meet with policymakers that we’ll try to post here shortly. Meanwhile, you can access the video via the “Policy” tab on the ACS homepage.
