Assembly Reception

Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to attend the Assembly on Sleep and Respiratory Neurobiology (SRN) Reception to be held at the 2017 ATS International Conference in Washington DC.  This year we will be hosting a reception with the aim of facilitating interaction between assembly members and new junior members attending the SRN Assembly Membership Meeting.

The Reception will be held on Monday, May 22nd from 7:00-10:00pm, at the Grand Hyatt Washington DC–Wilson - Arlington (Constitution Level 3B). There will be hot and cold hors d'oeuvres provided in a setting that will allow you to interact with a variety of people, including tall bar tables as well as smaller tables for those that wish to sit.

The SRN Membership Meeting will be held in the Grand Hyatt Washington DC - Constitution Ballroom B (Constitution Level 3B) prior to the reception, on Monday, May 22nd from 5:00-7:00pm

The evening will begin at 7:00 pm with cocktails at a cash bar as well as your choice of hot and cold hors d'oeuvres. We will then have a presentation by Thomas J. Balkin, Ph.D., Senior Scientist in the Department of Behavioral Biology, Walter Reed Army Institute, Silver Spring, MD and former  Chairman of the National Sleep Foundation, entitled "The Insidiousness of Sleepiness."

Making a Program Donation to your Assembly will go to supporting programmatic activities planned by the Assemblies Executive Committees. Donations made by Assembly members will go to the Assembly of your choice and help subsidize activities for Assembly members at the ATS International Conference. To make a donation to your assembly, please click here.

Please register soon, as space is limited and reservations are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. The cost for the reception is $50 for ATS members, $60 for non-members and $30 for members-in-training (fellows). We encourage members to pre-purchase tickets for their trainees when they purchase tickets for themselves. (See registration instructions below)

We expect the Reception to attract a lively mix of basic scientists and clinical specialists. This will be an excellent opportunity to get acquainted with Assembly members in an informal setting. We are encouraging trainees to come to the reception and membership meeting. We hope that you will join us for this delightful evening and look forward to seeing you there.
