GSA extends hearty thanks to all who helped make the 2007 Annual Meeting in Denver a resounding success! It turned out to be GSA’s second largest meeting ever — surpassed only by the 1988 Centennial Meeting. It takes countless volunteer hours of hard work to create the amazing variety of programs and events we enjoy each year, and you did it!
Thanks also to our 2007 Meeting Sponsors for their valuable support.
