Light refreshments such as fruit, bagels, coffee, tea, and water will be available from 9:30-10:00 am. The meeting will be held in Multipurpose Classroom B.

The meeting is open to professionals, amateurs, and students; basically anyone who has an interest in mollusks. OVUM has no dues, officers, abstracts, or publications. Even busy people can spend a day networking and talking about mollusks.
Please limit presentations to 15 minutes.
I am planning to go, barring last minute changes to my plans.
