In summer 2020, Capital Science Communicators transitioned to an elected leadership structure and process. Henceforth, CapSciComm Professional Members and Student Members are eligible to file for candidacy, and are voted to the Executive Board by their peers. Board Members are unpaid volunteers, serving one-year terms with opportunity for re-election. Click here for the CapSciComm Charter and description of board positions.
