Dear MAC members:
Thanks to all of you who expressed interest in attending the social on Friday night. We will meet right after the MAC business meeting to share rides to BB's. If you did not reply to our initial announcement, feel free to join the group on Friday. I hope you can attend our events and celebrate with fellow division members the 40th anniversary of MAC. Below, I am sending a list of MAC-sponsored and CSM panels, luncheons, and meetings by day and time. I hope you can attend our sessions and support our membership.
Will see you in St. Louis,

Ilia Rodriguez
Associate Professor, University of New Mexico
