Policy Action Network Submission Form

The Public Policy Database is intended to facilitate communication between the ASLO Public Policy Office, members of ASLO, and policy makers in the U.S., Canada, and EU. Aquatic scientists who sign up for the Public Policy section have the option to:

  1. receive periodic updates on policy issues of interest to aquatic scientists;
  2. stay informed of the latest trends in research funding in the U.S., Canada, European Union and other governments;
  3. receive alerts when letters or calls to your government representatives are needed, and
  4. serve as a resource for policymakers in your district who are seeking scientific advice in your area of expertise.

Your participation in this database effort will help ASLO fill critical communication gaps between aquatic scientists and policy makers.

Your information will be retrievable through web searches on the ASLO Website. Participants may update their entries at any time using the Database Update Page, or by contacting the Web Editor.

After submitting your information, you will receive a reminder of your chosen password by email. You should record and keep this password. You will need it to update your record.

Please choose a password and enter it in both spaces.
You will need this password to update your record in future.

A more detailed description of your interests, current and past activities would be very useful to highlight particular areas of expertise. Please be concise but complete. The information in this section will be indexed and used to locate individuals with a particular background, so should contain as many keywords as you feel are necessary and relevant to describing your background. You should limit your entry to the equivalent of a one-page mini-resume, but it can be as brief as a single paragraph.
 
General Guidelines
  • It is not necessary to stay within the space provided. Your input can be any reasonable length.
  • Format the message so that it appears within the text box as you wish it to appear on the page. Please note that complex formatting (e.g. two columns, indentations more than one space) will generally be lost. Use a simple, left-justified format.
  • Break paragraphs using the ENTER key, leaving a single blank line between paragraphs.
  • Long lines that go beyond the right hand edge of the text box will be automatically word-wrapped. Most browsers will automatically wrap the display text as you type; if your browser does not, the text will still be word-wrapped in the web page created for your entry. You will have an opportunity to review your entry and check its appearance.
