AOCS Annual Meeting & Expo Monday April 29, 2013

Monday is a busy day at the 104th AOCS Annual Meeting & Expo! Start your day with The Forum on Emerging Technologies which promises to:
"encompass global discussions on matters that affect the future of our industries. These informative sessions expand beyond the science to address how current critical issues impact the business of fats and oils."
Then join us for the AOCS Annual Business Meeting and Luncheon which will feature a special performance. (Note: you must have a ticket for lunch). Following the business meeting dessert will be served in the Expo Hall-join us for a 'Sweet Retreat' as well as  a Young Professional Networking event!
In the evening we will have a reception as well as a dedicated poster viewing (with authors present) in the Expo Hall. If that is not enough, divisions and sections will host a variety of evening events in the neighboring Westin Hotel.
