Student Forum, Reprint Exchange, and Raffle at SVP

Dear students of SVP:

As the meeting approaches, I just wanted to take a quick moment to remind
you about the student forum, reprint exchange, and raffle. These events will
be held on Thursday, Oct. 19, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., in the Pinnacle
Room, Penthouse Level of the Crowne Plaza Hotel.

The forum will be held in a roundtable format, and it is quite informal.
You'll have the chance to visit one-on-one with established paleontologists
on a variety of topics, ranging from grad school to fieldwork to grants. All
of our participants have excellent credentials in their topics, and we are
fortunate to have the chairs of a number of SVP committees in attendance
(poster prize, Romer prize, SVP, and others).

The current list of topics (largely finalized, but some small changes may

*Finding Non-Academic Jobs in Paleontology - ReBecca Hunt, Augustana College
*Finding Academic Jobs in Paleontology - Pat O'Connor, Ohio University
*NSF Grants and Fellowships - John Damuth, National Science Foundation

Additionally, once again we will have the reprint exchange during the forum.
A number of members of the society have kindly donated reprints of their
recent papers on a variety of topics, covering a broad spectrum of taxa and
disciplines within paleontology. This will be a great chance to build up
your libraries! If you have reprints of your own to donate, you are also
welcome to bring a few.

Finally. . .the winner of the raffle for the student membership will be
announced toward the end of the forum. As noted previously, tickets are $1
US, and all proceeds go to the student travel fund.

See you all in Ottawa!
