I hope you all had a great holiday season with your friends and family, and are prepared for the exciting challenges and opportunities that await in 2019! With the 2019 Annual Meeting just around the corner, I can say that SRI Leadership is thrilled to be able to host all of you during a spectacular program in Paris. There is so much to look forward to, and we are glad we are able to share it with all of our dedicated members.
In light of the fast approaching Annual Meeting, I would like to call your attention to the late breaking abstract deadline, which is January 11th. This is a great opportunity to showcase the science you have been working on most recently. At the Program Committee Meeting in Los Angles, we were so impressed with the science submitted during the general call for abstracts that we can’t wait to see the new research submitted in just 10 days’ time.
Finally, as a new year is upon us, we will begin our fundraising efforts for 2019. As you all are aware, SRI launched its Foundation in 2018 with the hopes of raising $1M before any funds are dispersed. We are planning activities at the Annual Meeting to celebrate this accomplishment, as well as ramp up our fundraising efforts. As you plan your contributions for 2019, please keep the SRI Foundation in mind!
