On Wednesday July 6th, the CRA Government Affairs Office welcomed the 2022 class of Eben Tisdale Science Policy Fellows to the CRA Washington DC office. These fellows, undergraduates at universities and colleges from across the United States, spent the summer at high-tech companies, firms, or trade associations in Washington, learning the intricacies of technology policy. Additionally, they took two courses at George Mason University, attended guest lectures and briefings from speakers across Washington, and attended briefings at the Capitol, the Department of State, and the National Press Club. The fellows were in the office to attend a presentation by Brian Mosley, Senior Policy Analyst in CRA’s Office of Government Affairs, covering the policy concerns and issues that the association works on and attempts to influence at the federal level.
This year’s Tisdale Fellow for CRA is Dalton Hellwege (far right). Dalton is a rising senior at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, pursuing a major in Statistics and Analytics, with a minor in Studio Art. This summer, Dalton has been tracking key federal appropriation bills and other pieces of legislation. We’ve been thrilled to have him on staff this summer!
