Get Involved

SLB thrives on the energy and ideas of members like you.  Get involved and make a difference in the society and larger scientific community!  Below are just a few suggestions of how you can get involved.  SLB welcomes members at all career levels to activity participate in the direction of the society.  Contact us to volunteer and/or share your ideas to benefit the SLB community!

  1. Be an SLB Ambassador.  This can take many forms.  Include the SLB Flag on your posters and or slides. You can do member outreach by telling others about the society, the meeting, and all of the award opportunities SLB supports.  You can award promising early career investigators that you meet at local, regional, and international meetings with Trainee Award certificates (contact us for more information and resources).
  2. Write an article for iSLB about your own career path.  It’s a nice way to bring attention to your own research while also helping junior members see career pathway options.
  3. Come to the annual meeting.  Submit an abstract, apply for an award, bring your colleagues!  There are always many volunteer opportunities at the meeting including poster judging, mentoring and much more.
  4. Update your member profile and connect with other members in your interest area. Perhaps if a collaboration comes out of it, you can write an article for iSLB about the project or paper you worked on together! Learn how to update your profile and utilize the member directory search function.
  5. Submit your paper to JLB. JLB is your journal. Submit your manuscript and be part of this well recognized publication to highlight your science.
  6. Propose a Special Interest Group Satellite (SIG) for the annual meeting. Contact us with your ideas and host your own session at the annual meeting.
