Greetings, I hope this message finds you well!

I am writing to you regarding the Society for Affective Science and its
annual meeting, which will take place at the Parc 55 Hotel in San
Francisco, CA on April 23-25, 2020.

As a regular attendee and a member of the membership and outreach
committee, I encourage you and your trainees and students to attend!
Personally, I and my students have found SAS to be an excellent venue for
presenting research, and we find the interdisciplinary nature of the
program to be uniquely beneficial.

Below, I outline exciting highlights from the upcoming meeting and
opportunities for you and your students to submit abstracts for symposia,
flash talks or posters.

Please let me know if you have any questions.  I hope to see you at the
2020 SAS meeting!

All the best,
