BREAKFAST WITH THE DPS OFFICERS
 
Graduate students and postdocs attending the DPS meeting are cordially 
invited to have breakfast with the current, previous, and incoming DPS 
Chairs. This is a great opportunity to discuss the future of planetary 
science, get the inside scoop, and enjoy a free hot breakfast on the DPS 
tab (but only on one day per person). Breakfasts will be from 7:30 to 
8:20 each day; the location is not yet finalized but will be in the hotel 
or convention center. Attendance will be limited to ten students each 
day, so sign up early. To request a place, send an email to Alan Harris, 
LOC Chair, with your name, institution, and preferred day, and one or 
more alternate days.
