Join DCSWA on Saturday, February 13, 2016, from 7 to 11 p.m., as we host a festive gala for the hundreds of science writers attending the AAAS annual meeting in Washington, D.C.
The gala will feature delicious food and drink, music and dancing at the historic National Press Club in downtown D.C. DJs Eric Hand and Nsikan Akpan, both DCSWA members, will provide the beats.
We will provide shuttles from the AAAS meeting venue (the Marriott Wardman Park hotel), but the Press Club is also Metro accessible, located two blocks from the Metro Center stop on the red, blue, orange and silver lines.
DCSWA members and registered journalists and PIOs attending the meeting are invited to attend free of charge. DCSWA members can bring non-member guests, but there will be a charge of $35 per guest, which you can pay by cash, check or credit card at the door.
Don’t miss the chance to mingle, sip cocktails, and dance with fellow journalists from around the country and around the world!
