ASCLS GA Board Meeting Saturday January 23rd 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta

Directions to CHOA Egleston

From ASCLS Georgia President Lacey Campbell:

Welcome to 2016! Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year! We would like to remind you that our third Board Meeting this year will be this Saturday, January 23rd from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Egleston Campus on Clifton Road in Atlanta, GA. As many of you know, we had originally planned to set up a tour with the CDC museum in conjunction with a Continuing Education event similar to the fall CEU; however, the CDC museum is closed for the month of January. We hope to schedule this event some time later this year. Instead, we plan to use this meeting to set up the details of our State Spring Meeting.
If you would like to attend, please RSVP as soon as possible so we may plan accordingly for breakfast. If you will have guests including co-workers, family, or friends, please ensure to include them on your email RSVP. 🙂 (RSVP to laceyanncampbell@gmail.com)
Also, please make sure you renew your membership with ASCLS to ensure you don’t miss any vital information! You may renew online at http://www.ascls.org/join-ascls/join. The prorated membership began in the fall, so new members will receive membership until July 31st, 2017.
We strongly encourage students to attend this meeting so that we may get them involved in the planning of the state meeting and in positions of leadership to grow them professionally within our society. Program Directors and Professors, please forward this email to your students and strongly encourage them to attend this meeting next weekend. We would love to have them!
About 90% of our board meeting will be used to plan the details of our state meeting. We look forward to having you next Saturday
