Announcing an informal networking event for ESA 2015!

Cheers! A Networking Event Sponsored by the Early Career Ecologist Section

Rolling Event, to take place throughout the meeting. Ticket sales Mon-Thurs, Redemption at the evening poster sessions Mon-Thurs held in the Baltimore Convention Center exhibit hall.

The annual ESA meeting is busy and exciting, but it can be difficult for early career ecologists to find and make new professional contacts with more senior ecologists. To facilitate interactions, the ECES is organizing a meet-and-greet activity where professional ecologists purchase drink tickets for early career ecologists*, to help everyone expand their network!

Here’s how it works:

We’re asking more senior professional ecologists to “pick up the tab” for early career drinks** at the exhibit hall bar during the evening poster session (Monday-Thursday, 4:40-6:30 pm). Participating professionals will pre-purchase tickets*** for random distribution to early career participants at the ESA booth. Each ticket will have the sponsor’s name and contact information on the back. Tickets will be available on a first-come first-served basis, at the Early Career Ecologists booth, limited to 1 per person. To redeem a ticket, the early career ecologist must find this sponsor at the ESA meeting, introduce themselves, and thank them for the drink! Recipients are encouraged to ask others for help in finding their sponsor. Happy networking!

** can be used for beer, wine, or soda – whatever you like and as many as you want to supply!

*** available for purchase Monday-Thursday at the ESA booth in the exhibit hall
