The Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) announces the
sixth webinar in the Spring 2013 Career Development Webinar Series,
scheduled for Wednesday, 20 March 2013 at 5:00 p.m. GMT. For information

This week’s webinar is entitled “Making a Good Meeting a Great Meeting:
Secrets to Success in Event and Project Planning.” It will be presented
by Helen Wiggins, Director of Programs at the Arctic Research Consortium
of the U.S. (ARCUS); and Olivia Lee, postdoctoral researcher at the
University of Alaska Fairbanks. In the world of polar science, meetings
are a part of our everyday work lives, especially as collaboration and
cooperation become the norm. Whether it’s a small team meeting, a
planning teleconference, or a large science meeting, the difference
between success and failure relies on techniques and skills that most of
us are not taught in school. Knowing how to plan and execute a
successful meeting can greatly improve productivity and can serve you no
matter what your career path.

TO ATTEND THE WEBINAR
