The 2016 USMS Annual Meeting, also known as “Convention”, was held in September in Atlanta, Georgia. LMSC attendees were: Emily von Jentzen (MT At-Large Delegate), Mark Johnston (MT Delegate), Donn Livoni (USMS Open Water Committee Chair) and Jeanne Ensign (USMS Finance Committee Chair). Pre-meeting information, the meeting schedule, meeting minutes and much more can be found on the Convention page of the USMS website. For an in-depth view of Convention from the eyes of a ﬁrst time delegate, read Emily’s “summary”. It’s lengthy but well worth the read. Convention.
