                                     Exhibitors Award Information


      During the Exhibitors Meeting at last year’s Symposium,  a proposal was made to only offer the Exhibitors Award ever other year.  This proposal was made due to a lack of participation from our Student and Junior Membership. The Exhibitors in attendance voted to approve the proposal.  Consequently, the Award will only be offered for even-numbered years until further notice.  The Southeast Section has also reported that applications from Junior and Student Members have substantially decreased over the past few years! 

                                      Don’t miss out on the opportunity to further your education in your chosen career!
