Become a CapSciComm Member

When Capital Science Communicators was established in 2013, it was with the community in mind — a new network where we can pool our collective expertise and enthusiasm for science communication, and a chance to pay it forward to colleagues and students seeking encouragement.

The success of our network is in our membership. As members, you bring the genuine energy and diverse perspectives we need to shape and lead our CapSciComm community. The need to nurture great scicomm and science literacy in the Sacramento region remains — and you can play your part!

Why Dues: Running an efficient and energetic volunteer organization takes time and money. Member dues will go towards covering our baseline costs (e.g. domain registration, Google Drive, member swag, venue rental fees). More importantly, building a treasury will open the door for exciting new programming possibilities — such as student scholarships, special events, or annual mixers with other local societies.
