About FUN



FUN Member Survey 

The Executive Committee of FUN wants to hear from you!!!  We have developed a survey that will allow us to understand how FUN can better serve its members.  We have several specific goals: 1) to assist us in making conacts with vendors and graduate programs that may be able to support the FUN student travel award program, 2) to learn more about what is most important for you in respect to the FUN programming at the annual SFN meetings (social, poster session, business meeting, etc), and 3)  to understand what additional resources you would like FUN to provide, whether that is content on the FUN website or programming at regional conferences.   So, please take 10 minutes and fill out the survey (link is below).  It will be open until Jan. 31, 2018.  If you have any questions about the survey, please contact Leah Chase ([email protected]).
