Annual Meetings & Congressional Briefings
The main, re-occurring activities of the AERC are its workshops, congressional briefings, and business meetings, which typically take place in the fall in Washington D.C. For a number of years, we have co-partnered with AIBS in hosting communications workshops and Hill briefings. The latter usually take place in the Capitol Building, the Rayburn House Office building, or one of the Senate office buildings. AERC has also scheduled its annual meeting in conjunction with events hosted by one of our member institutions, including a recent workshop held at the Savannah River Ecology Lab (SREL) on “Integrating Ecosystem Research into the Nuclear Age”.
AERC is a member organization of the American Institute of Biological Sciences (AIBS). AERC works closely with the AIBS Public Policy Office and AERC representatives participate in AIBS-hosted functions such as workshops and roundtables.
