The annual Div. K Meeting will be held in a time slot adjacent to the Division K Lecture at the 2010 General Meeting in San Diego. Please check the General Meeting Program for information on the specific date and room. The meeting usually lasts about 30 minutes. This is an opportunity for members to meet your divisional officers and give them feedback on topics for future divisional symposia. In addition, you can suggest names of candidates for Chair-elect for placement on the 2010 ballot and provide suggestions on how the division can better serve member interests.
