You don’t want to miss this year’s EMGS Annual Meeting in Raleigh, North Carolina.
 
A Great Venue for EMGS to Meet!
Raleigh is famously part of the “Research Triangle” and we are fortunate to use this plethora of local talent in our program as speakers and exhibitors. Since this area is home to two federal agencies, four major research universities and six other colleges and universities, we expect our meeting to be well attended. 
 
This year’s meeting is titled,
