New Member & First-time Attendee Networking Event

Time: Monday, September 23 ~ 18:00–18:30

Centre de Convencions Internacional de Barcelona

Room: TBD

For all New SPS Members, First-time Meeting attendees and Veteran SPS Members too! On behalf of the SPS Membership Committee we are excited continue our event designed to provide enhanced early career support and interaction for new SPS members and first-time meeting attendees. We welcome you to attend a unique 30-minute welcome event where you, as an early career professional, will receive information on the Society, including opportunities for engagement, and be paired with an SPS “veteran” member who has volunteered their time towards mentorship. This special welcome reception and engagement opportunity is available for first-time annual meeting attendees, as well as members that have joined SPS within the last 3 years.

The goal of the outreach is to educate new members and first-time attendees on the overall value of the Society to them on a personal and professional level, while also affording a valuable opportunity for meaningful learning and career advancement via the establishment of a mentoring relationship. The goal of the mentoring relationship is for the veteran and new member/attendee to have meaningful networking and scientific interactions at the Meeting, but to continue this effort post-meeting. In addition to the networking portion of the event, we will also have some special giveaways!

We sincerely hope that you choose to connect with this vital and rewarding opportunity towards learning more about what SPS membership has to offer and networking with long-time SPS members.

If you wish to attend this event, please complete the RSVP form by September 1.
