Ambassador's in Action
At the first meeting of the CED-IADR Ambassador project, which took place during the CED-IADR/NOF congress in Vienna (September 21-23, 2017) following action items where defined:
COMMUNICATION TOOLS FOR THE CED-IADR AMBASSADOR’S:
To allow a fast communication among Ambassadors, a Facebook (FB) private page will be created, where all private communications are shared.
A FB public page, linked to the CED-IADR site or at the existing CED-IADR website, whenever members may need to formulate questions, will also be created. In this way, a platform for question answering and commenting will be created. That page will be mirrored on a Research Gate Project, in order to reach researchers not using Facebook.
WhatsApp group between the Ambassadors (for this, mobile numbers need to be collected).
MARKETING TOOLS FOR THE CED-IADR AMBASSADOR’S:
CED-IADR office will prepare a new leaflet and presentation to describe the membership benefits and all awards & grants conditions in short.
Once the leaflet and presentation are ready, a one-by-one lecture (online) will be provided to all CED-IADR Ambassadors.
FREQUENCY OF CED-IADR AMBASSADOR GATHERING:
It was agreed that on each CED/PER-IADR congress, a CED-IADR Ambassador meeting will be held at the congress venue. The next possible meeting can be held at the IADR at-large meeting in London, England - July 25-28, 2018. An invitation will be send in due time.
CALL FOR ACTION:
As soon as the FB pages are online, you will notice that there are still some countries without any Ambassador(s). I would therefore ask your help in referring to me the contacts of any CED-IADR members (from those countries) who may be willing to become a CED-IADR Ambassador.
In a second step, a few YouTube movies will be created explaining the most asked topics, such as for instance a tutorial for each meeting subscription and especially for how to apply for an award, if the abstract is eligible, criteria for a good abstract and how to choose the right competition.
