Dear fellows,

We sponsored a similar seminar a couple of years ago with Lewis-Burke Associates and it was 
very interesting.  I hope that some of you can make this.


How Washington Works (or doesn't) for Science Seminar
Tuesday, October 14, 2008
3:00-4:15 p.m.
Facilitators: April Burke and Sarah Spreitzer, Lewis-Burke Associates

Interested in how the nation's science agenda fares in a time of
transition and difficulty? Join April Burke, president and founder of
Lewis-Burke Associates LLC (LBA) in Washington, DC, and her colleague
Sarah Spreitzer, who will discuss the country's annual federal science
budget process, public perceptions of science and characterizations in
the media, and how results of the election and the financial crisis
could affect immediate and long term federal funding of science. This
session is open to anyone interested in how science gets federally
funded in Washington, D.C. and potential impacts of current funding

Ms. Burke has provided government relations advice to UCAR and the
atmospheric sciences community regarding public policy and legislation
for over 12 years. Her experience includes positions on Capitol Hill
and in the not-for-profit sector. Her past work includes 26 years of
experience in legislative and regulatory analysis in areas related to
science and engineering research, technology transfer, health and
health research policy, and higher education.  

Sarah Spreitzer comes to LBA from a background in federal relations
and professional association work in areas including education policy,
and ocean and environmental issues. She has been a leader for these
and other issues within the higher education advocacy community.
