Where will you be from August 2 through 6? I hope you'll be joining us at Microscopy & Microanalysis 2015 in Portland, OR! Registration is open and early registration rates are in effect until June 22.
Local affiliated society meetings provide a great opportunity for established microscopists to interact with students at all levels. This kind of professional networking is even more 'magnified' at M&M2015. Did you know that MSA provides student bursaries that provide compensation for working while attending M&M? Or that there is a Student Mixer where student attendees can network with their peers and meet MSA officers and committee chairs? Encourage the students in your LAS to attend M&M2015. The enthusiasm from participating in these events can continue to your LAS' fall and winter meetings.
The LAS breakfast will be held during meeting week (Tuesday, 4 August), and up to 2 representatives from each LAS will be invited to attend. The breakfast is a combination of LAS business, networking and camaraderie. Invitations will be sent as we get closer to M&M 2015. Please make sure that your LAS contact information on the website is correct.
See you in Portland!
