Australian Citizen Science Association Chair

I'm pleased to let you know that I was appointed as Chair of the Australian Citizen Science Association (ACSA) at their AGM last week. I am very excited to take on the role for a range of reasons. It's an exciting time to be involved in Citizen Science with Government and Research bodies taking more notice of the enormous potential of citizen science to generate multiple benefits. I’m also excited by the prospect of working with like-minded people (as I do with BCAL) to strengthen the connection between citizen and professional scientists. BCAL gives me a good grounding on some of the practicalities of implementing citizen science projects. My chair role in ACSA will be more about advocacy and strategy so between ACSA and BCAL I will have a happy balance of CS activities.
All the best, Annie

Excellent work Annie. Inat is being referred to increasingly in Science media such as podcasting (e.g. In defence of Plants). Important to have a capable representative at this time in the current climate.
