FAQs – COMPASS Network

Who is the COMPASS Network for?

The COMPASS Network is open to anyone—at any career stage and in any profession—who has attended a COMPASS event and who would like further their science communication goals by joining a community of support and ongoing learning.

Does joining the COMPASS Network have a cost?

No! We will never charge admission to join the COMPASS Network. Some events open to Network members may have associated costs to attend, but we do not charge a fee to be a member of the COMPASS Network.

I’ve only been to one COMPASS training ever. Is the COMPASS Network for me?

Yes! The COMPASS Network is open to anyone who has attended a COMPASS event—whether a workshop, roundtable, or something else—and who would like to become part of a community of people committed to ongoing learning and working together to build a future where people and nature both thrive.

Can I join the COMPASS Network if I’ve never participated in a COMPASS event or workshop?

A core aspect of the COMPASS Network is a commitment to ongoing learning and growth in a community of support with shared values. Attending a COMPASS event (whether it’s participating in a full workshop or listening to a free panel) is a requirement so that you can learn more about our approach and values, and see whether this community is one you want to be part of. After registering for and attending a COMPASS event, you’ll be invited to join the Network (but don’t worry, we won’t add you without your consent)!

How do I join the COMPASS Network?

After you’ve attended an event, you’ll receive an email with an invitation to join the COMPASS Network. Once you opt in, you’ll receive a link to create login credentials to the COMPASS Network’s online community. If you’ve attended an event in the past, you can request to join here.
