  • details on the Montreal hot spot for the GECC happy hour.

GECC is on Facebook

Graduate and Early Career Caucus is making it even easier for you to keep in touch with other caucus members by creating its own Facebook group.  If you are a member of Facebook, you can be a part of GECC discussions, stay up-to-date on announcements, and share the word about the GECC on Facebook.  Find the group by clicking on the link below or searching from Facebook.

Special thanks to Suzanne Fischer, GECC alternate Co-Chair, for setting up the group!

GECC’s presence on Facebook should not be construed as an endorsement of that site.

There are various levels of support for those who appear on the program: NSF
travel grants for graduate students, independent scholars, and recent
scholars; subsidized hotel rooms for graduate students; and information on
child care in Montreal. This should be a wonderful meeting, and our local
arrangements committee is busily planning for some special events in Quebec.
