Planning meeting for the 2014/2015 season on Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

When: Tuesday, August 26th from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm

Where: University of Michigan, North Campus, conference room of the Lurie Biomedical Engineering Building (LBME);
1101 Beal Ave., Ann Arbor

2015 is the International Year of Light (IYL) and, as an optics professional organization, we could be involved in promoting awareness of the role that optics and photonics play in our everyday life.

To discuss and plan the upcoming year activities, we will hold the annual AAOSA Organizing meeting for 2014-2015 on Tuesday, August 26th from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm in the 2203 conference room of the Lurie Biomedical Engineering Building (LBME).   We would like to have as many people as possible participate in this meeting, as our success this upcoming season depends on it!

We will cover the following items:

  • Discuss plans for IYL
  • Plan for the usual monthly seminar series
  • Discuss plans to increase participation
  • Usual organization business (Review of treasurer’s records, etc…)

Bring your ideas for a seminar topic!
See you there.
