Student Poster Showcase

The host committee for the planning conference has established a “Student Poster Showcase” for this year’s conference, with work from each of the three PAB recognized program in the two states (AAMU, JSU, and Auburn).  This will be an exhibition, not a competition, and is independent of the student awards program of each of the chapters.  Each program can display up to five posters of student-focused work.  It will be up to each program to determine the participants for their program.

The Showcase will be on Thursday, October 17th from 7:30am to 5:30pm with a “stand by your poster” hour from 10:30 to 11:30am before the Awards Luncheon.  Students can set up their work for all or just part of the day.

There are some specific space and use limitations for the facility, so all displays should be posters on a firm backer-board on an easel and not more than 36 inches wide.  There is limited space, so your consideration is appreciated.  There will be no electrical service and all displays must be “portable”.  Please bring your own display easels.  Institutions should feel free to bring one poster or display with information about their respective programs.  If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Jordan Yin of AAMU at Jordan.Yin@aamu.edu

We look forward to seeing all the great student work!
