The annual meeting of ASHG will be in Washington next year (2010), so I
just wanted you to know ahead of time so you might think about
submitting an abstract for a poster. Bonnie and I had one accepted for
the 2006 meeting in New Orleans. I think that you need to have at least
one ASHG member as a co-author. I'm a member and it is usually worth
your while to join if you plan to attend the meeting (the cost of
membership + member-registration is not much more than non-member
registration, and you get the journal for a year, or the cost of
member-registration is even less if you choose on-line access rather
than hard copy of the journal). The deadline for abstract submission is
June 2, 2010. The dates of the meeting are Nov. 2-6, which is about the
same time as the FTDNA meeting, so I hope they don't conflict (maybe I
should send a note to Bennett or Max).
Jim, could you forward this to your NVIG members.
