EICHPS Social Meeting 12/5/2005

On Thursday, December 2, the Eastern Idaho Chapter HPS held a social meeting in Idaho Falls. Generous sponsorship was provided by Canberra (TJokerst@canberra.com), Landauer, Inc. (dcohen@landauerinc.com), Ortec (KC.Thompson@ortec-online.com), and Thermo Electron (jeffrey.anspaugh@thermo.com). The social event was intended primarily as a means for bringing members together in a casual atmosphere, as well as to increase active membership. Heavy hors d'oeuvres and drinks were served, all complimentary to members signing up for the 2006 membership year. It was noted by more than one guest that this event was an incredible bargain - a $25 value for the price of a $10 membership. The meeting brought together 23 members and one guest - attendance was a bit lower than expected primarily due to inclement weather.

Photographs of this event can be accessed below. Event photographs, preliminary schedules of upcoming meetings, membership forms, and other resources may be found on this website.
