Early Career Scholars 'Elevator Pitch' Contest

For the first time the Early Career Committee is hosting an ‘elevator pitch’ event at the 2016 Annual Meeting during which early career political psychologists will learn how to present their research in conversation in a brief, interesting and memorable way. An ‘elevator pitch’ is a concise statement of your research interests and experience to be shared informally and orally in various professional contexts. For more information and to sign up please see THIS DOCUMENT or email the ECC.
