Planetary Science Community,
Become a Laboratory Astrophysics Division (LAD) member and register for the AAS/LAD Joint Virtual Meeting by May 29, 2020.
As the Vice-Chair of LAD, it is my goal to encourage planetary scientists to become LAD members, such that LAD has equal representation from the planetary science community. If you ever use or need laboratory data for your models or observational analysis, you may want to consider becoming a LAD member. You will find the right collaborator for your data needs. If you do laboratory work, you would find a platform to showcase your work. If you are looking for careers in laboratory studies pertinent to astrophysics and planetary sciences, LAD provides you networking opportunities. This year LAD jointly with AAS has their first ever virtual conference June 1-3, 2020.
