IASNR Expands its Social Media Presence
The IASNR communications team has been working to expand IASNR’s social media presence. To that end, we recruited two student volunteer social media coordinators to help expand IASNR’s profile and to provide more rapid sharing of information, ideas, and news within the existing IASNR community. We believe that a strong social media presence will generate stronger connections among IASNR members and expand awareness of our association to cultivate new members. Two students have volunteered to take the help for 2022 and 2023. They will be attending the IASNR conferences and posting material throughout IASNR events.
