General Membership Calls

Our quarterly General Membership calls have been an important and dynamic part of our Genomics Forum since its inception.   They provide time and space for new, old, and curious members to learn about the work of our committees -Program, Policy, and Membership and Communications- to ask questions, and to provide input critical to making the Genomics Forum valuable to each of our members.

Upcoming Call:

Friday, May 2. 2014
