2019 District 8 Meeting

Keynote speaker: Dr. Melween Martinez, Director of the Caribbean Primate Research Center in Puerto Rico

Featured Speaker: Ann Turner, Executive Director AALAS


It's time to think about Spring! Ok, we may be a few months away but it's not too soon to start thinking about the District 8 meeting in April. The Program Committee has been working very hard the last few months with a speaker line-up that will knock your socks off! As the Publicity Chair, I will be sending out several notes to your newsletter, Facebook, and the D8 website to familiarize you with some of our speakers that will be featured at the meeting. All certified individuals should seriously consider attending and if you aren't certified yet, there will be valuable information that could help get you started in the certification process. This first communication will just focus on the meeting in general. I challenge you all to approach your superiors now to inform them of your interest in attending the District 8 meeting, April 25th and 26th at the Hyatt Regency in Seattle Washington. Not only is it important to get those CEU's, but you will go home with a plethora of information for your facility. And if that wasn't enough, you have the opportunity to meet so many people that do the same type of work you do! If you are thinking that there is no way your facility would pay for you to do something like this, my answer to you is, it never hurts to ask!  


Thanks for your time! The next time you hear from me, I will be writing about our Keynote Speaker, Dr. Melween Martinez! If you can't wait for me, google her. You'll be amazed! 


Until next time...
