We are almost one month away from the beginning of the 65th Anniversary Annual Scientific Meeting! As details are finalized and travel plans are being made, I want to reiterate my excitement for this event, and provide a preview of what you will experience in San Diego.
As science changes and evolves, so too does the scientific content at the SRI Annual Meeting. There will be several new sessions and networking opportunities, but I would like to specifically draw your attention to a new mini-symposia introduced this year: Setting the Research Agenda for Transgender Medicine in 2018, as well as a new plenary session with presentations from our SRI grant recipients and new lunch-time panel sessions- to name a few. Overall, Dr. Marilyn Cipolla, our 2018 SRI Program Director, has put together an outstanding program for all!
Also, as I have mentioned before, the Business Meeting will take on a new structure this year. Not only is the Business Meeting a time to become current on the state of SRI, but we also are seeking member participation concerning future action taken by SRI leadership, and the overall direction of the Society. Please join us on Saturday, March 10th for breakfast at 7:30 am followed by the Business Meeting at 8:00 am. Celebrating 65 years is a great accomplishment, and through our activities and important milestones, we continue to demonstrate the vibrancy of the Society.
Please review the following materials and please send any items you would like to have as part of our agenda to SRI Executive Director, Anne Krolikowski at email@example.com.
As a final note, I want to remind all of you to cast your votes for the future SRI leadership positions. Elections close on Friday, February 9th, and the results will be presented at the Business Meeting.
See you in San Diego!
Sandy Davidge, PhD
SRI President, 2017-2018
