It’s too late to prepare when the opportunity comes. – Coach John Wooden

You can make a difference. Good communication skills are critical for you, and your colleagues, organization, and students. Don't wait until it is too late...like the day before a job interview or a meeting with the university President. Set up sci comm training programs to learn the skills today so that they are available when needed tomorrow. Get started now… make science communication training a regular part of your organization.   

JOIN THE CTS NETWORK

Researchers and administrators want to integrate science communication into career development plans for themselves and their students, staff and faculty. Please consider joining us in this important initiative. Members can help by becoming volunteer instructors, mentors/advisors, advocates for sci comm, and hosts for CTS programs. No dues … just let us know of your interests, expertise and how to reach you. Volunteers are needed as instructors, mentors, event coordinators, advisers, and outreach associates. Contact information is listed below.

HOST CTS WORKSHOPS

Hosting a CTS Workshop is easy, inexpensive and a terrific investment for you and your organization. Contact us to discuss your needs. CTS will travel to your site and present the Workshop(s) of interest. We enjoy working with groups of all sizes.

The only costs to you for hosting a Workshop is a modest honorarium, similar to what you would give a guest speaker(s). The honorarium partially covers travel expenses, preparation time, materials and funds needed to continue CTS work. 

If you are interested in hosting a workshop, please let us know as soon as possible. Let’s get started…we’re here to help! Contact information is listed below.

spread the word

A goal of the CTS initiative is to create a culture where all scientists are good speakers. Consider ways that your organization can encourage learning, practicing and using good communication skills. Check out our Resource page for suggestions or contact CTS.
