From the Hostess Pu Chapter:

The Thursday evening mixer and reception during Convention brings everyone together and gives members a chance to showcase their science, chapter, and/or company/institution they work for. In addition, this year we would like to start a new tradition in which we recognize women who have made an impact on your scientific career and/or a contribution to the advancement of science. If you would like her to be recognized, please email Susie Banziger ( and include a photo and a brief description of her accomplishments and/or impact on your career for display during our Thursday evening reception/mixer.
