Subject: Help AAS advocate for NSF funding on 18 & 19 September
The AAS is seeking volunteers to lobby Congress on the issue of increased NSF funding on 18 & 19 September. The reason for this multidisciplinary effort is to make a final push for FY 2008 NSF Appropriations.
Tuesday, 18 September will be an orientation beginning at 3:30pm followed by a reception on the Hill at 5:30. On Wednesday, 19 September, participants will make advocacy visits to Hill offices as part of interdisciplinary teams.
A small amount of support for travel costs will be made available on a per-case basis.
Local volunteers who do not need lodging are strongly encouraged to participate.
Please contact Jeremy Richardson (richardsonlj at aas.org) for more details. The deadline for expressing interest in this effort is 15 August.
Mailed to AAS members from aas.org 30 July 2007.
