The Texas Scholars Strategy Network Under the Dome

Tuesday, February 3, 2014 from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM, Texas Capitol, Lt. Governor’s Room, 1100 Congress Ave, Austin, Texas

We are officially launching the Texas (statewide) chapter of the Scholars Strategy Network (SSN) at the Texas State Capitol. We invite you to join us at an elegant reception in the Lt. Governor’s room from 5:30-7:30 pm.  This event will offer you the opportunity to join the Texas SSN and to network with others who are interested in using research to shape and improve public policy. Why should you join the SSN (  Public policy is too important to be left only to think tanks and professionals clustered in Washington, DC. The SSN gives scholars, researchers and others interested in using research to improve public policy all over the United States opportunities and tools to contribute to policymaking and public debates at the national, state, and local levels. The SSN combines national membership and regional chapters, like many other federated civic organizations that have had a major impact in American history.
