Venue: Room 3-3 Shioyasaki, Big Palette Fukushima and online
With each new triennium, our network changes as the IAU National Outreach Coordinators (NOCs) complete their tenure. During this special session at APRIM 2023, we ask our NOCs to look back at their many accomplishments over the last three years and consider the legacy they leave behind, paving the way for a new NOC to continue their important work. This OAO Satellite Session will feature talks from some of our outgoing NOCs, a workshop on press releases, social media, and institutional branding, and a networking event. We look forward to greeting you on 11 August from 10:30 AM – 5:00 PM JST!

Press releases and branding are central to astronomy institutions, but how can we build a good press release that is easy to understand and engages the public on social media? Join us in the OAO Satellite Workshop to discuss these issues and explore examples from partners and colleagues. The workshop will take place during the OAO Satellite Session at APRIM 2023 on 11 August from 1:30 PM – 3:30 PM JST. Click on the following link to register for the workshop:
