Kerry Smith, Arizona State University, will be held on Monday, January 4, 2016, from 12:15 – 2:15 p.m., at the Hilton Union Square — Golden Gate 1 & 2.  Due to outrageously high food prices in San Francisco, AERE will subsidize the lunch to keep costs in line with previous years. The Hilton offers early-bird pricing—to take advantage of that, click here to make your reservation by Monday, December 14, 5:00 pm EST.  After that, rates increase 10%.
