Invite a colleague to submit an abstract for the
Dear [ insert name ]
I'm an active member of the Geological Society of America. We are currently in the process of developing the technical program for the Society's 116th annual meeting, which will be held in Denver at the Colorado Convention Center, November 7-10, 2004. I think your work could be an important addition and I'd like to encourage you to submit an abstract.
To give you some background, GSA is a broad, unifying scientific society with 17,500 members. (Visit www.geosociety.org for more on the Society.) We expect 6000+ geoscientists representing all disciplines to attend the annual meeting. Go to www.geosociety.org/meetings/2004/ to view the technical program and access session descriptions.
You can submit your abstract online at gsa.confex.com/gsa/2004AM/index.epl and the cost is $18.00 for students, $30.00 for professionals. The deadline is July 13, 2004.
I'd be happy to talk with you about the meeting and answer any questions you might have regarding your decision to participate.
We're looking forward to a great technical program in Denver. I hope you'll be part of it.
