Presidential nomination
We have received one nomination for President – Lisa Bailey.

Lisa has been working in science communication for the last decade, as both a practitioner working on a huge variety of science events including SCINEMA International Science Film Festival, content production for Australia’s Science Channel, and teaching undergraduate science communication courses. She is now Senior Exhibition Manager at MOD. at UniSA, Australia's leading future-focused museum, provoking new ideas at the intersection of science, art and innovation. Lisa has been an ASC member since 2005, and President of the South Australian branch of ASC since 2015. "I realise the hard slog that is keeping a local branch alive! But I’ve always found the community of ASC members to be so worthwhile. Whether it’s informal catch ups at the state level, asking the hive mind collective wisdom for help over the ASC-list or facebook group, or engaging with the huge variety of research and activity happening across the country at the conferences, my engagement with ASC and its members always leaves me inspired and energised – and it’s this that I’d like to foster for our members as we take ASC forward as an ever evolving and changing organisation."
