Updates from the SRM 2025 planning committee.
The Planning Committee for the SRM Annual Meeting that will be held in Spokane in 2025 has been meeting regularly to discuss organizing such an important event hosted by our PNW Section. We have had several meetings with the parent society and among the Planning Committee members to define some of the main tasks and start crafting ideas for 2025 Spokane. Members of the Planning Committee who attended the SRM Annual Meeting in Boise, ID, last February focused on observing and learning how the meeting was organized, so we could incorporate those experiences into the planning of our conference. Ongoing planning activities include defining the theme and the logo for 2025 Spokane. Please participate in the invitation to provide input in determining the theme of the Annual Meeting (https://pnwsrm.org/srm-2025-meeting-theme-contest/). The goal is to have a theme ready by the PNW Section Summer Meeting and Tour on June 21-23, 2023, in Cranbrook, BC (https://pnwsrm.org/pnw-section-summer-meeting-2023/).
Also, we want to invite volunteers to join the multiple sub-committees (program, local arrangements, tradeshow, etc.) that are taking shape. Please contact us (Carlos or Pat) or Bob Gillaspy or Tom Platt to participate in these sub-committees and the numerous activities ahead of us!
