Chair Update

April 25, 2017

Greetings, SIG members!

I wanted to reach out to you to request your help and provide you with some information regarding the upcoming conference.

First of all, I wanted to remind you that the SIG business meeting this Saturday:
Sat, April 29, 6:30 to 8:00pm, Grand Hyatt San Antonio, Fourth Floor, Crockett D

We have held off on running our officer election for the upcoming year as we are seeking additional SIG members willing to serve the SIG. Therefore, in having a nice snack and drinks, getting to know your fellow SIG members, and discussing future plans for the SIG, it is of utmost importance to the continued viability of the SIG that we start to develop future leaders for the SIG. We will be recruiting as well as taking nominations for those willing to provide service. So please be sure to join us for the business meeting.

Secondly, I wanted to provide an overview of the SIG sessions:
