Conference Information for Graduate Students
The NASSS Conference is a great place for grad students to meet each other and to interact with faculty in their field. The NASSS grad reps organize several programs to help graduate students get the most out of the conference. Specific Information on these programs is available by clicking on the "Grads" tab of the 2017 Conference Page.
You can also contact grad rep Sam Twito (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions about the programs.

Graduate Student Specific Events
Each year, the graduate reps help organize a panel lunch and a social at the conference.
