Good afternoon, AMWA!
I wanted to inform you of the upcoming annual conference, as well as an awesome opportunity for those who have done research in the past.
AMWA’s national conference will be held March 22-25, 2018 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This conference will consist of workshops, a gala, a poster symposium, and more. Registration prices can be found on their website, and they will remain constant until January (prices will go up). Closer to December/January, we will send a reminder email about registering for the conference, as well as an interest poll to see who wants to travel or book a hotel room together.
For now, it is important to know that if you want to present a poster at the conference, the deadline is November 17, 2017. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, so we recommend that you apply as soon as possible to have a higher chance of your abstract being accepted. The poster symposium itself will be on Saturday, March 24th from 12:30 PM to 2 PM.
AMWA offers a travel grant! See the link below for more information. Applications for the travel grant are also accepted on a rolling basis, so apply ASAP.
