Dear SIT members,
 
Recently, I've been reflecting on what the Radiation Research Society has meant to me.  I attended my first RRS meeting in 2013 in New Orleans.  I was early into my PhD program and my husband and I had just had a baby.  Anxious and homesick already, I remember sitting at the airport wondering why I was making the trip for this particular conference at that point in my life... but, I'm so glad that I did. I walked in for the SIT workshop that first early morning, and I was greeted with warm, enthusiastic smiles.  I was absolutely captivated by the presentations - I took pages and pages of notes - and during the coffee and lunch breaks, I met such wonderful people in the SIT community.  I even sat next to one of my "radiation heroes" during the lunch break and had a meaningful and stimulating conversation with her - starstruck!  The fun and collegiality of the SIT social that night confirmed for me that I had just joined up with a group of people that would mean a lot to me personally and professionally.
 
Knowing that I had this new group of friends, I was very excited to attend the rest of the meeting.  The atmosphere was very welcoming, and I was so happy to be learning so much.  I felt confident and comfortable asking questions and speaking up when I had the opportunity to talk with senior scientists.  When the meeting ended, I felt energized; I had a long list of articles marked as "to read", and I was eager to get back to my work.  I also knew that I wanted to contribute to this incredible SIT community outside of the annual RRS meeting.  I'm proud that I was given the opportunity to work as part of the SIT committee, and, fortunately, I haven't had to miss a RRS meeting yet.   
 
I share this story with you, because I hope that you have similar feelings of belonging and fondness for both the SIT community and the greater Radiation Research Society.  I know, for me, RRS has been a source of education, encouragement, and comfort.  I know that, as part of the RRS, I belong to a scientific society which yearns to come together to study and advance radiation science.  And, I also know, as part of RRS, I will always have an audience with whom I can share my ideas and results and receive the feedback and support I need to help me reach my next goal, my next step.                              
 
We are very excited for the annual meeting in Hawaii.  We have a great, "star-studded" SIT Workshop planned for you, including, for the first time a Science Speed Networking session (nice opportunity to practice your research pitch in a relaxed environment!).  In addition to the workshop, you're not going to want to miss the SIT social following the workshop or the Mentors Lunch during the meeting. If you're a returning SIT member, we hope to see you soon, and if you're a new SIT member at the meeting, we look forward to meeting you!
 
In the meantime, please check out our group page on Facebook: Radiation Research - Scholar in Training.  And, congratulations again to all of our SIT Travel Award winners!: https://radres.site-ym.com/page/2016SITAWARD
