Do you remember your first Plant Biology meeting? Was it in Hawaii, or just last year in Montreal?  Or will Plant Biology 2019 (August 3–7, San Jose, California) be your first meeting? The ASPB has held this annual meeting for more than 80 years (!) and every year, a substantial proportion of attendees are first-timers. With that in mind, we are asking the plant biology community to think back on your first meeting and give some tips to the first-timers. 

With more than a thousand attendees from dozens of countries, we welcome your perspectives. Do you have a tip for undergraduates? people from outside the U.S.? job seekers? faculty members? industry scientists?  Bring it on-- we want to hear from you!!
