Recap of M&M 2018 Baltimore

We hope everyone had a great time at M&M 2018 in Baltimore MD. It was a busy week full of excellent presentations, equipment demos, training, dinners and more. Your CMMS officers were spotted getting down to business at the MSA Local Affiliate Society meeting.

There were big crowds at the MSA poster session with rows and rows of posters, too many to count, and a multitude of engaging vendors on the expo floor.

We hope everyone submitted micrographs to the MSA Micrograph Competition, if not be sure to submit one next year. The competition was tough, but CMMS member, Gary Bauchan from USDA ARS, won second place for his SEM image of the “Coffee Drinking Mite”.

The CMMS Meet & Greet at the Pratt Street Ale House was a huge success, it served as a convenient opportunity for local CMMS members to converge and casually talk. CMMS provided dollar-off drink coupons to all the attendees.

These were just a few of the many highlights of M&M 2018, thank you all for attending, we hope everyone had a great time. Stay tuned for more upcoming CMMS events, as we work to grow and expand this society. We are planing to host another social event and membership drive in December.
