Ruth Hill Bro, privacy attorney, speaker, and author, chairs the Membership and Diversity (MAD) Committee of the ABA Section of Science & Technology Law and served as the 2008-09 Section Chair. She can be reached at email@example.com. "It's a MAD World: Membership and Diversity, with a SciTech Edge," is a column designed to spotlight membership and diversity-related topics, resources, and opportunities for SciTech members.
With SciTech as your home section, you don’t need to look any further than your own backyard to get thought leadership on the latest science and technology law issues coming from “somewhere over the rainbow.”
Because you’re always going places, so is SciTech, as we go mobile to put the tools you need at your fingertips:
Wherever you go, we go too. SciTech appears in your inbox much like the Wizard of Laws, with treats to tease your brain (“with the thoughts you’ll be thinkin,’ you could be another Lincoln”), boost your nerve (to confront the ever-changing science and technology law issues that cross your path like “lions, tigers, and bears”), and touch your heart (there’s no place like your home section).
Beyond all this, SciTech members get so many benefits as ABA members, including the most widely read legal magazine in the country (ABA Journal), access to the ABA Job Board and other career development resources, and up to 18 hours of free webinars/teleconferences (and CLE credit) each year through the ABA CLE Premier Speaker Series.
Please let us know how we can help you get more out of your membership; contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 630-926-1273. And take advantage of this opportunity to update your email address (using your Ruby Slippers—see below) to make sure you are getting all of the free SciTech benefits you’ve dreamed of. In SciTech, the “dreams that you dare to dream really do come true.”
With the tornado of ABA email you receive, it may be hard to find your way back to your home section, SciTech. The good news is that you already have the power to limit the email you get from the ABA—you just don’t know how . . .
Like Dorothy, you are just three clicks away. Unlike Dorothy, you don’t need to discover it on your own.
Start at the Email Preference Center by going to myABA at www.ambar.org and logging in (next to the Search box near the top of the page); under the blue “Email, Lists, and Subscriptions” heading, select “Update Your Communications Preferences.” Then:
While you’re clicking, say “There’s no place like SciTech, there’s no place like SciTech . . .” Then click on the gold “Save My Preferences” button (your yellow brick road), and you’re on your way!
