In addition, our Annual Meeting planning committee has been actively putting together an exciting program for October. If you would like to submit a presentation or poster, there is still some time left, but the deadlines are fast approaching. For presentations, the deadline is August 31. Posters are due September 20. Please see the website for details on how to submit. Also, we have two Gold Sponsors already signed up: Thomson Reuters and DEXSTR: Thanks for the support!!
