- Saturday, November 2nd, 7:30 am to 8:00 am
- Century A Ballroom, Hilton University of Florida Conference Center
First-Timers, Students, and Veteran Conference-Goers:
Bring your breakfast to the ballroom and join other newcomers before the Business Meeting starts.
For the fourth year in a row, NASW, thanks to volunteer Michael Newman, is offering its successful “Sci-Buddy” mentoring program for first-time attendees and students. “Sci-Buddies” are veterans of past NASW conferences who volunteer to introduce newcomers and students to other attendees; help them avoid confusion and anxiety by being a source of information and advice on meeting sessions, networking and other topics; and in general, help make ScienceWriters2013 the most productive and satisfying time possible for all.
Anyone wishing to be a “Sci-Buddy” should alert the folks at the registration desk upon arrival. “Buddies” will receive a special "Ask Me" ribbon so that newcomers and students will know whom to approach for help. First-timers should ask for their special ribbon that identifies them as new to the annual conference experience.
To kick things off, there will be specially marked tables at the Saturday, November 2, breakfast where first-timers, students and “Sci-Buddies” can get together, share some lively discussion and start new friendships. If you’re in one of these groups, please join us!
