Invitation to Attend
my pleasure to invite you to the AMSMIC Annual Meeting, a conference
dedicated to the challenges facing academic leaders in microbiology and
immunology research. AMSMIC is involved in many activities ranging from
public policy initiatives to educator workshops, and we welcome
conference participation by the leadership of microbiology/immunology
units within schools of medicine, veterinary medicine, dentistry, and
If you have attended an AMSMIC meeting previously, you already know the value of talking with your academic cohorts and sharing their strategies for leadership. If you have never attended, you are overdue for this important networking and career development opportunity, and we are ready to help. I hope you will be able to join us in January for a stimulating meeting in this spectacular setting.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can answer any questions about AMSMIC or its annual meeting.
