Upcoming Events

Texas Ices has DoS on June 23rd in Waco. If you are an ICES member it is an election meeting. If you are an ICES member they usually don’t charge for that DoS since it is a voting meeting. See ICES.org. This year the annual convention will be in Lexington, KY is the 8-11th of August. You don’t have to be a member to attend a DoS but you get in cheaper. Membership is $60 per year.
