New: Postdoc SLACK Channel

To facilitate some quick communications for our postdoc community, the DCPDA now has a SLACK channel. It is essentially a “workroom” or a community where we can post quick messages about things any of us might want to let others know about. For example – Great social event happening this weekend? you’ve discovered an amazing local resource for postdocs with families? are you leaving/looking for a great apartment? Looking for/Sharing a ride? Jump onto slack, and get connected!
