Dear ASCers,

This month our public LinkedIn group ( reached 1,000 members.

LinkedIn appears to be becoming increasingly popular and useful, with a variety of thriving online groups and active discussions the world over.

We decided to leave the public group open to non ASC members far and wide, whilst also creating an ASC members-only sub group today for more on-topic conversations for our current financial members.

If you are a current ASC member, a LinkedIn invitation to join the new members-only group was sent to you tonight to the email address that you used to join the ASC.

If you do not receive this email, your membership may not be current, or your spam folder ate it.

You can check this, or request an invitation to a different email address, by contacting me at

Remember that by keeping your email current in the online registration system you will receive reminders to renew, member newsletters, and other ASC announcements that you might appreciate. If you'd like a reminder on how to do this, please ask me.

Thanks for being so engaged in all things sci comm, it keeps things interesting.

Best regards,



Kali Madden
