Focus on Societies Dinner

This year, to express appreciation for our member societies, FGS will be hosting a complimentary dinner for society leaders in conjunction with our Annual Meeting. The dinner will be held Wednesday, August 21 at 6:00 p.m. at the Omni Shoreham Hotel.

Our new website allows member societies to create accounts for the leaders within their organizations so they can have access to the member-only benefits. To participate in this FGS dinner, you must have an FGS website account as either a delegate, society leader or the main contact for your society.

If you are a board member for a member society and don't yet have your FGS account login, talk to your organization's FGS contact and have them check out the FGS Website User Guide.
