As host for this year’s annual meeting in Atlanta, we would like to welcome everyone to join us this year in Hot-lanta and remind y’all the time is here to register! The meeting is held October 18th-23rd at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta, and it’s gearing up to be a great one. We have 13 workshops scheduled with a variety of ‘knowledge levels’, ranging from ‘basic’ to ‘advanced’ on a variety of topics you’re sure to find interesting. There will also be a fantastic Wednesday night event at the world renowned Georgia Aquarium, including a private dolphin show for our group, sponsored by Thermo Scientific.

Even though October seems far away, now is the time to be aware of some key dates: deadline for registration is August 31, 2015. After that, there will be an additional $200 late fee, and on-site registration will be $300, so save yourself a little money and register early.

To register, you can go to the SOFT website and register online.  Meeting registration for SOFT members this year is $499, with the fee for non-members at $675, so if you haven’t joined this great organization yet now is the time!  Workshop costs for members are $200 for a full-day and $125 for a half-day, with an additional $50 each for non-members.

Don’t forget to reserve your hotel accommodations early. As we all know, those rooms tend to go fast so don’t get left out!

We’re really looking forward to having a fantastic meeting this fall in our amazing city, so please come join us for fellowship and fun!

Hope to see you there,

Lisa and Robert
