The MAS Annual Business Meeting is held at 5:15 pm on Wednesday at the annual Microscopy and Microanalysis Meeting following the last talks of the day. It is a chance to find out what the society has been doing, see the officers of the society and what the committees are doing. You can put faces and personalities to the names you have been hearing or reading about. The meeting is also when the official transfer of the gavel between incoming and outgoing presidents occurs. Once the meeting has been adjourned, then you can join the participants as they all head to the annual social at a local bar. Stop by the MAS table in the convention center to find out the meeting room.
The meeting minutes and committee reports of previous business meetings can be found here.
