June 15, 2010

June is finally upon us and with that it is time for the GNYMLA spring/summer chapter meeting. As announced in an earlier save the date e-mail, the meeting will be hosted at Columbia University on June 16th. This meeting will be an all day event and consist of three presentations and a business meeting with two hours for a lunch break.

Links for directions and maps to Columbia University by public transportation and car are at the bottom of the page. Please RSVP to if you plan on attending this meeting.
It would be helpful to the hosting institution for lunch and meeting room arrangements.

Also – the new membership year (2010-11) begins July 1. This meeting would be a perfect time to get current with past/present/future membership dues. You can print out a membership form from the link below, fill it out and bring cash or a check to the meeting.

I hope to see many of you there.
