We’ll announce and celebrate award winners as well as our incoming and outgoing board members. Also on the agenda is a bit of social time and some exciting announcements about upcoming opportunities to get involved and to share your research.

We’d like the meeting to be as accessible as possible, so please let me know if you need accommodation. In case the timing isn’t good for you we will record the meeting for future viewing.
