Meet the SWCC Team

Our team is made up of a volunteer Board of Directors and 1 part-time, contract General Manager. Together we work to support the members of the SWCC through professional development, networking, deliving into deep ethical questions about our professions, and by supporting and promoting the work of our members at events, conferences, and online. We aim to be a place where science writers, science communicators, science journalists, enthusiasts, and students come together to build a strong community of science writers and communicators.
