February 10 2017 by Ian M. Anderson
In this issue of my monthly letter, I wish to introduce to you the new MSA Student Council, which was created by resolution of Council at its Winter Council Meeting last month in Tampa, and to bring you up to speed on their initiatives, including a major pre-meeting event to take place on the Saturday preceding M&M 2017.

This year we mark 75 years as a Society, established in 1942 as the Electron Microscopy Society of America (EMSA), and since our 50th anniversary the Microscopy Society of America (MSA).

The sections of MSA who interact most closely with DMG are asked for their evaluations of the management of the society in advance and feedback from these groups within MSA forms the core of the discussions with DMG.
