What's new at ASTC 2010?

Each year, the ASTC Annual Conference and Exhibit Hall provide science center professionals from across the globe with an intimate forum to exchange ideas and discuss the field’s leading issues. With over 100 conference sessions, participants are challenged to explore ways of making science centers more essential to their communities. This year’s conference will offer several new events and opportunities:

Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE™) Continuing Education credits
CFRE Continuing Education credits will be available for the first time at this year’s conference. Only selected sessions indicated by the CFRE logo are approved for credit. More details will be included when the Preliminary Program is published.

Registration Deal
When you buy 4 full conference registrations from the same institution, you’ll get a 5th registration at HALF PRICE!

Poster Showcase
In an effort to reflect the variety of work and research going on in the field, the ASTC Conference Program Planning Committee has added a poster session to the 2010 ASTC Annual Conference. In line with the conference theme, “Ho‘okele–To Navigate: Science Centers as Wayfinders to New Horizons,” and ASTC’s Strategic Priorities, more than 40 posters will be grouped by category and displayed in the Exhibit Hall.

Social Media Opportunities
New this year, ASTC is setting up a site on the social network CrowdVine where attendees can meet and connect online before the event, create a personal agenda of sessions and activities, and discuss conference topics. Once you have registered for ASTC 2010, you will receive an e-mail invitation to join.
