Membership Hack: Association StoryCorps

Association members have stories to tell - help them

Association members have stories to tell. The American Geophysical Union has enlisted StoryCorps, a nonprofit that collects and archives audio conversations with everyday Americans, to document its members’ accounts of their journeys through science.

How to hack it? Maybe you’ve heard of StoryCorps, the nonprofit organization whose recorded audio conversations with everyday Americans are regularly featured on National Public Radio’s (NPR) Morning Edition. In 2017, the American Geophysical Union created its own StoryCorps community, giving members the ability to record and share personal accounts of their work in the Earth and space sciences.

The tools are simple: Members upload audio files using the StoryCorps app and a smartphone. Since the AGU Narratives project began, it has collected more than 220 stories, including some that speak to the impact of AGU, a message the organization is promoting as part of its 100th anniversary.
