A new professional society has emerged to support practitioners of Citizen Science! See their initial announcement/offer for free membership below (the date says March 15, but it looks like the website is still open for now):
I'm happy to help spread the word that the Citizen Science Association (CSA) has just announced free, inaugural membership: CitizenScienceAssociation.org/membership
The CSA supports practitioners in the broad and growing field of public participation in scientific research, and aims to advance a global and cross-disciplinary field of practice. As a new organization, the CSA is inviting inaugural members to help shape key decisions about direction, priorities, and leadership. Members who join before 15 March 2014 can vote on draft vision and mission statements.
Interested individuals are invited to respond, anonymously, to a Membership Questionnaire. Responses will help the CSA understand community needs, interests, and capacities to help shape and build support for member services. The questionnaire will provide a link to a separate member registration form. You can access the Questionnaire directly here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/CSAMemberQuestionnaire

Please help spread the word, and thank you!
