2009 Annual Meeting & Exposition!
No, this is not about jazz, but below you'll find several ways to get involved and network around the meeting — before, during, and after your trip.

Keep reading for other great ways that you can start making connections today!
Free wifi is available in the halls and common areas (not in technical session rooms).

The Annual Meeting is also under the events tab on GSA's Facebook page.
There you'll find a photo area where you can be the first to see new pictures from this year's meeting. We hope you’ll add your own images too!
