President's Report
Fellow SIVB Members,

We should all be in the final stages of planning for the 2011 SIVB Meeting in Raleigh in June. The Program Committee has done an excellent job preparing a Program that will have plenty for everyone. Numerous other committees have been working equally hard to provide a full spectrum of activities for all the attendees. While the scientific sessions and sidebar conversations are the reasons we come together each year, SIVB has always maintained critical investments in educational and student-based initiatives. These initiatives help us expand our influence throughout the scientific community and help secure future growth of the Society. As you are planning your meeting schedule please look for those activities directed toward students and education. I know it is a packed schedule but these will be worth your time.

Many of our colleagues are experiencing travel restrictions. I wish the Society could easily convey the content and energy of the meeting to those that cannot attend. I hope that each of us, who are fortunate enough to be in Raleigh for the meeting, will carry the products of the meeting back to those who were less fortunate this year. Hopefully, we can share some benefits of being at SIVB with them and encourage them to look forward to future meetings .... Continue Reading
