We spent some time discussing the upcoming annual meeting including what sessions will be held and the schedule for the day of the business meeting. The Membership and Communications Committee is working to review and develop new materials to hand out at the meeting. We will also have live blogging throughout the meeting to keep those who cannot be in PA up to speed! This is a new adventure for the Forum and we hope it succeeds and is helpful to our members. Another new thing for the event this year is the Policy Committee has been working very diligently on a policy for APHA. The committee will be brining the draft to the meeting to get any feedback members have on improving it before the final submission in winter.
*Business meeting is coming up! We hope to see you all there or have you join us online for the live blogging experience.
