ATS Assemblies and Sections Meet at ATS 2014

The Society’s assemblies and sections will hold their annual Membership Meetings today and Monday at the Manchester Grand Hyatt. All members and other interested parties are encouraged to attend these meetings. The Assembly Membership Meetings provide an update on each assembly’s activities via the assembly’s leadership and provide assembly members the chance to have input on future directions, information on how to get involved, and networking opportunities. Voting results for the assembly’s future leaders will also be announced. See below for the schedule of Assembly Membership Meetings, Receptions, Section Meetings, and Assembly Dinners.

The Assembly Membership Meetings will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Monday, with the exception of the Assemblies on Behavioral Science and Health Services Research and Pediatrics, which will meet from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. today.
