For the sixth year in a row, NASW 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 ScienceWriters2015 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 with questions. There also is a special “First Timer” ribbon for folks at their inaugural ScienceWriters meeting that will identify them as new to the annual conference experience.
To kick things off, first-timers, students and “Sci-Buddies” will get together at the Saturday, October 10, breakfast.
Grab breakfast outside the President's Ballroom and then come to the Crispus Attucks room to join us.
