The New Member and First Time Attendee Reception will provide opportunities for those new to SMDM to meet each other and SMDM leaders. Our goal is to help new members and first time conference attendees get the most out of their experience with SMDM and the Annual Meeting. Please join us for an informal orientation, where you will meet members of the Board, Chairs of the interest groups, gain insight into how our meeting operates, and receive help in identifying the sessions that are a good fit for you. Special tables will be set up for interest groups and regional communities to meet and help new members find their niche in the Society. This is a must attend event for new attendees.
