Student-Mentor Mixer

Cost: None
Registration is open to: Students Only
Description: The NABS Annual Student-Mentor Mixer is designed to facilitate interactions between students and experienced professionals from a variety of benthos-related careers. The planning committee asks students to register online with their conference registration so that we can plan for enough food/space and provide students with a drink ticket specific to this event.  If professionals would like to serve as mentors for this event, please email the Student-Mentor Mixer Committee at nabs.student.mentor.mixer@gmail.com.

Live & Silent Auctions

All funds raised from the live and silent auctions will go into the NABS Endowment that serves as the source for research and travel awards presented to graduate students.

Jim Junker, Emily Campbell, and Shrijeeta Ganguly are planning the 2011 Live Auction. If you are interested in donating items or assisting with the live auction, please contact Jim Junker (james.junker1@gmail.com) or Emily Campbell (campb613@msu.edu).

Ryan McShane, Jorge Lassus, and Shrijeeta Ganguly will contact publishers and book authors for donations to the 2011 NABS Silent Book Auction. If you have recently published a book and would like to contribute to this year's auction please contact us via e-mail or bring your book to the meeting. If you are a graduate student and plan on attending this year's meeting, we would like to challenge you to bring a book from your university or region, or maybe even from your favorite publishing professor. For further information, or to donate, please contact Ryan McShane (ryan.mcshane@colostate.edu).
