Pop with the Presidents 

SASES will once again offer this popular event in 2018. This is a unique opportunity to have lunch with the current leaders and past presidents of ASA, CSSA, and SSSA.  Ask questions about their careers, the Societies, their scientific careers (and how the science has grown), their views on career opportunities, and more.  This event is only open to undergraduate students and priority admission will be given to those that pre-register.  There is no cost to you to attend and space is limited.


Tours are exclusively for undergraduates and advisors. All tours will take place Saturday, November 3rd, 2018. You may choose which tour you'd like to go on when you submit your registration for the Annual Meeting.
