MSA members across the country have established 25 local affiliated societies (LAS). These LAS hold regular meetings and social events and publish newsletters to provide regional networking and outreach opportunities for the local microscopy community. Please join a local society or renew your membership in 2023. Find out more about your local microscopy society and its activities on the LAS community page.
Texas Society for Microscopy (TSM) will be hosting its 57th annual meeting at UT Dallas (Davidson-Gundy Alumni Center) from March 16-18, 2023. For further information visit https://texas.microscopy.org/events/annual-tsm-meeting/

Updating LAS Webpage
If you have new officers taking over the leadership in your society please let me know (Bernd_Zechmann@baylor.edu) so we can update the LAS directory on the MSA webpage.
MSA provides LAS support with Tour Speakers, Grants-in-Aid, and Special Meeting grants. If you are planning any activities for your LAS, please consider applying for one of these funding sources. Details can be found at http://www.microscopy.org/communities/programs.cfm.
If you are interested to start an Affiliated Society in your region or have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at Bernd_Zechmann@baylor.edu.
