This webinar will offer specific strategies and advice on how to best prepare for such a meeting, develop your message, and follow up in a meaningful way. It will include updates about current federal education policy discussions to help identify what information offices or members find most useful and how to talk about your research in ways that will be most compelling to them.

The webinar will include time for Q&A.

AERA Director of Government Relations Juliane Baron will be joined by current and recent graduate students Megan Austin, University of Minnesota; Amy Li, Ph.D., University of Northern Colorado; and Federick Ngo, Ph.D., University of Southern California. Austin, Li, and Ngo all participated in advocacy training and visits on Capitol Hill as part of the Catalyzing Advocacy in Science and Engineering (CASE) workshop convened by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). This webinar will provide information on how graduate students can be involved in science policy and first-hand accounts of representing AERA on their Hill visits.
