- You can register on the GNSI website to receive monthly announcements on what is happening. This is free.  
- You can also check the events calendar for workshops that you might be able to fit in on a long weekend (http://www.gnsi.org/event)
-You can read about the career of science illustration here: http://www.gnsi.org/science-illustration/careers-ed
-You can join the Sci-art listserve to communicate with other illustrators- Free. (http://www.gnsi.org/resources/reviews/gnsi-sciart-l-listserv)
- You can ask questions on the GNSI Forum once you have an account - Free. http://www.gnsi.org/forum

Hope those ideas help you get started.
