LAS Director's Message


The Local Affiliated Societies are the MSA local outreach to the microscopy community in over 20 locations.  The list of LAS can be found by clicking here. 


The LAS breakfast will be held during meeting week (Tuesday, 4 August), and up to 2 representatives from each LAS are invited to attend.  The breakfast is a combination of LAS business, networking and camaraderie.  Invitations have been sent to the representatives for whom I have contact information.  Please contact me at ASAP if you are a designated representative of your LAS and you have not received an invitation.

See you soon in Portland!
