The meeting will begin with an optional continuing education course, Comparing and Selecting Growth Models, on Friday afternoon on the campus of Christopher Newport University (CNU).

The poster social will be held Friday evening at CNU; food and drink will be provided. Oral presentations will commence Saturday morning at CNU and continue through the day, concluding with the always exciting chapter business meeting and presentation of awards. The Saturday dinner social will be held at the world-renowned Mariners’ Museum, adjacent to CNU campus.
