Welcome Letter from the Southeastern Branch President
It is a pleasure to announce and invited you to attend and participate in the 92nd Annual Meeting of the Southeastern Branch (SEB) of the Entomological Society of America. This year, our meeting will be held March 4-7, 2018 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Orlando at SeaWorld. Local Arrangements Chair, Rob Meagher, visited the hotel and reports that the hotel has made recent upgrades and should provide an excellent venue for our meeting. Program Chair, Jawwad Qureshi, and his committee are compiling an impressive number of symposia that will provide breadth to our program.
Please watch the Southeastern Branch Meeting website for news about the meeting including dates for registration, housing, and paper/poster submissions. Also, please consider nominating a student, early career professional, or colleague for one of the several awards available to our Branch and national membership.
Finally, be sure to take advantage of this opportunity to visit Orlando in March - a great time of year to visit a city full of fun and fascinating activities. I look forward to seeing you there.
Stephen L. Lapointe
SEB President 2017-2018
