Workshop: Create an Impact!

The objective of this workshop is to demystify the impact-statement writing process. Participants will leave this workshop with a draft statement, specific to their research or extension project.
Workshop participants will be familiarized with key concepts and approaches to documenting impact, and work one-on-one with facilitators, to create a statement for inclusion in the ASHS Center for Horticultural Impact Statements (CHRIS  During the workshop, participants will be familiarized with writing for their audience, a basic step-by-step progression to streamline the writing process, the online center tools, and how impact statements can be enhanced with images and links to their congressional districts, for quick distribution to deans, department chairs, publicists, and industry stakeholders. Participation is free, but will be limited to 25 participants. All participants will be enrolled in CHRIS in advance, and will be offered continuing editorial support and advice as they polish their draft statements during Fall 2013.
