PRELIMINARY PROGRAM FOR 1998-99
A MESSAGE FROM THE CO-CHAIRS
Welcome to the new program year of the D.C. IFT. Jim Heimbach and I are Go-Chairs of the Section this year, a decision made by the Executive Committee (ExCom) following the unexpected retirement of Steve Ziller, former Chair-Elect. Your ExCom has already met to decide a preliminary program which appears elsewhere in this issue. We have put together a variety of programs and invite your participation. Remember: It's never the same without YOU!
Bruce Stillings, President of IFT, is one of our own D.C. members. He's been busy making committee appointments, challenging committee chairs to develop key objectives that support IFT's Mission Statement, and speaking. The ExCom hopes Bruce will come and talk with us. Until we clinch that deal, you can sign up through the Smithsonian Institution Resident Associated Program to hear Bruce speak on Chocolate: Food of the Gods Past, Present, and Future.
Take special note of our October 22nd meeting on biotechnology. IFT Scientific Lecturer Mary Ellen Sanders will address us. Speakers such as Mary Ellen are funded by your dues dollars (national and local) to present at IFT meetings country-wide.
Jim and I will see you on the 10th.
