Dear AES Members,
The AES has experienced significant growth over the last few years such that our membership has increased significantly in number and breath. We are now supporting more professionals, researchers and academics in the areas of separation/detection with electrophoretic and related techniques.
This positive trajectory and the AES Board's efforts to expand our society's reach, we recently voted to change the society name from American Electrophoresis Society to the AES Electrophoresis Society. We consider this name to have greater global appeal which better represents the long term mission of our society to be a unique international organization dedicated to further the development of electrophoretic and related techniques as key components in many scientific investigations across a broad range of disciplines.
We are very optimistic about the future of AES; we invite you to reach out to your colleagues regarding the value you find in AES membership. Our commitment is to continue benefiting our members with high quality programming through our symposia and technical workshops, important growth opportunities for our student members, and dissemination of relevant articles, announcements and career opportunities through our Newsletter, Forums and Website. In addition, we have formed an alliance with the Federation of Analytical Chemistry and Spectroscopy Societies (FACSS) to support further benefits by bringing excellent symposia programming to our members.
We look forward to seeing you at the 2012 SciX conference (presented by FACSS), September 30-October 5, in Kansas City, MO and at the Annual AES Meeting, October 28- November 2 at the Pittsburgh Convention Center in Pittsburgh, PA.
The AES Electrophoresis Society
