Getting a Scientific Community’s Decadal Vision off the Ground – A scientific society client worked with the community to develop a decadal vision for its field.  This was the first time this scientific community undertook such an endeavor and Lewis-Burke worked with the client to guide the society’s volunteer leadership through the nuances of nurturing a realistic vision with meaningful messaging for policy makers.  After the vision was finalized, Lewis-Burke crafted and implemented a successful rollout strategy to the society’s membership, federal agency contacts, the White House, Capitol Hill and the rest of the scientific community.  As a direct result of these efforts, the society has increased its influence with policy makers and cultivated new congressional champions, the vision’s recommendations are informing federal agency priorities and the overall visibility and recognition of the importance of the field has been heightened.  Lewis-Burke continues to work with the society to make this decadal vision a reality.
