Thank you for making me your new newsletter editor! I'm excited to highlight your accomplishments and successes, and to bring you news from the field and your colleagues. One of my favorite events this past Winter quarter was Tech Week, which is always a great opportunity for programs to show our appreciation for your hard work and dedication to the animals. This was also a chance to highlight our technicians to the research community and show them how much work you do, for research and for the animals, every single day of the year. I hope you enjoyed the festivities!
Last but certainly not least, I want to thank several people who have contributed much of their own time and effort to make the Sentinel possible. Thank you to Dave Chu for bringing the Sentinel back into publication and skillfully running it for the past year - he’s left some big shoes to fill! A big thanks also to our webmaster, Carl Polizzi, who puts together the HTML version of the newsletter for those of us who read on mobile, and who always gives great pointers for design and layout.

SAVE THE DATE: 2018 District 8 Meeting May 9-11 at the The Duke Hotel, Newport Beach, CA
District 8 of the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science (AALAS) is one of eight AALAS District divisions in the United States. District 8 encompasses Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, Montana, Oregon, Utah, and Washington. AALAS District 8 has within it's boundaries 10 of the nearly 50 affiliated Branches of the Association. Each District has 2 elected members to the AALAS Board of Trustees who, along with the Officers, serve as the governing body of AALAS. The 2017 D8 Meeting was in March.
Send us your photos from NCB-AALAS events, along with brief notes on names places and happenings so we can record some history together. Our generous volunteer directors have been so busy running events like the annual Educational Symposium that we miss recording the actual day. So let's do it individually and gather pix from cell phones that were on scene! Send the goods to Carl at web services.
We would not get through a day at work without facilities, products, and services from our trusted professional vendors, and don't forget the generous Institutional Sponsors who bless us with support.
