Dear SSR member,

Although 2019 may seem like a long way off to many of you, the Future Meetings Committee is actively engaged in making the SSR 2019 Annual Meeting an excellent experience! But we need your help.

As you may have seen in the most recent Newsletter, four sites are up for consideration: San Jose, CA; Portland, OR; Spokane, WA; and Seattle, WA. As we work toward narrowing the field, it has become clear that each site presents significant pros and cons. Thus, we seek additional input from SSR's members regarding the candidate cities.

Haifan Lin 2015 SSR-ASRM Exchange Lecture

The session was moderated by Dr. Lin's department chair, Hugh Taylor. Great job!
