STAQ e-Newsletter December 2013

Dear <<First Name>>,
Welcome to STAQ's final e-Newsletter for 2013. We're counting down the days until the holidays. We wish you and your families a happy and peaceful holiday and a very happy new year! 
Thank you for your support of STAQ in 2013. We look forward to hearing from you again in 2014.

Senior Science Conference 2013

It was a huge success! Nearly 100 attendees enjoyed a range of seminars and workshops. Have you heard of agnotology? We hadn't either, until our first keynote John Cook informed us about it. Our second keynote, Ian O'Hara, gave us plenty to think about the future of biofuels and plastics. Read more...

Online payments now available

It's now even easier to renew your membership with us for 2014, as we can accept payments by credit card or PayPal online! We'll send you a reminder to join next year, but if you're feeling ultra-organised (at this time of year? We're impressed!), go ahead and join online now! It means you'll receive the first journal out in February 2014.

STAQ Office closure

The STAQ Office is closing to give our dedicated office staff a much-deserved holiday. The phone and email will not be checked regularly from C.O.B. Friday 13 December until the office reopens on Monday 20 January in 2014. Read more...

Well, that's it from us for 2013. We hope it's been a great year of learning. We're sure your students will have learned something too! As you say goodbye to your students on Thursday or Friday, remember the words of Carol Buchner: "They may forget what you said but they will never forget how you made them feel." 

Happy holidays!
From the STAQ Executive and Staff: Peta, Charlotte, Amanda, Tony, Grant, Susan, Nicole, and Gaynor.

P.S. You receive this email as a subscriber of STAQ News. You're not yet a full member! Consider joining STAQ in 2014.
