Two of the key findings from the Member Survey we conducted last year are:
- people are seeking a community through ACSA, and
- members are most interested in exchanging knowledge & experiences, and building a professional network.
To help facilitate these wishes, we’ve expanded the ‘My ACSA Profile’ section on our website and invite you to enter additional information about yourself and your citizen science experience / engagement. We hope that this will help foster that sense of community and enable you to learn more about other members interests and skill sets, which may help achieve that goal of building a professional network. This information will only visible to other ACSA members who are logged in to the membership portal.
We are also working on a search function, which we hope, in time, will allow you to search for ACSA members who are based in Western Australia and who are interested in human health, for example. This sort of capability will be fantastic in terms of allowing you to connect with others in your field, or in terms of finding the right person to answer a question you may have.
We invite you to update your ACSA member profile now. Click on the link below, select My member profile > Profile > Edit.
