The end-of-semester DBER Group Social is tentatively scheduled for November 30th.  Our socials are an opportunity for DBER Group members to get together, socialize, enjoy food and/or drinks together, and get to know one another more.  In the past, we’ve had potlucks, parties, ice-cream socials, and lunch with potential-grant-collaborator mingling.  If you have ideas, suggestions, and/or would like to assist in planning the social, please contact Leilani by October 30th.
