2018 CASMS Annual General Meeting and Dinner Event in San Diego
The Chinese American Society for Mass Spectrometry (CASMS) hosted a very successful banquet for 350 members and guests on Tuesday, June 5th, 2018 at the Westin Gaslamp Quarter Hotel Ballroom in San Diego, CA.
This Tuesday evening event started with a reception in Ballroom A at 5:45 PM and attendees were served with one free drink. Many people showed up at the reception and the gathering was interactive and relaxing.
The spacious ballroom next to the Banquet Ballroom provided an excellent venue for lively interactions among the attendees. The evening banquet featuring a 4-course meal with red wine started at 7 PM. During the banquet, the annual general meeting (AGM) of CASMS was held.
To provide an opportunity for additional networking and career advice sharing among CASMS members, three round-table discussion groups were formulated after the dinner program, including a table for career in industry led by Dr. Karen Wang, a table for academia led by Dr. Lingjun Li and a table for career opportunities in China led by Dr. Rong Wang. Such after-dinner activities obtained positive feedbacks and will be continued in the future annual CASMS event. Many attendees stayed till about 10 PM.
