ABSTRACT:

August 3-7, 1993, Mobile, AL., was the place to be. This year's conference was well attended with 83 registrants. Everyone in attendance was well pleased with the program and the nighttime forays. Wayne and Bill especially enjoyed themselves.

 Wolfgang Weber talked about and provided hands on demonstrations of sheet plastination. These specimens are the first actual brain slices to be done in the US. Most of them turned out to be fine teaching specimens.

 Other speakers included: Dr. Harmon Bickley; Dt: Bob Henry; Dr. Vincent Di Fabio; Ron Wade; Dale Ulmer; Tim Barnes; and the meeting host, USA Pathology Chairman, Dr. William A. Gardner, jr.

 Many good ideas were exchanged as speakers lectured and answered questions. Experienced plastinators mixed with first time conference attendees and shared many valuable tips and hints. Approximately one-half attending this conference were newcomers and were extremely interested in becoming part of and participating in our society.

 An informal meeting of members was held with many of the opinion that it is probably time to elect society officers in order to be more organized. This is to be on the agenda for '94 GRAZ meeting. Bill Wise has offered for the '95 Interim meeting to be held in Raleigh, NC, and most seemed highly receptive to this invitation. Good luck, Billi You'll do super.

 As the '93 Interim is history, I would be remiss if I didn't especially thank everyone for all the help and effort inputting this meeting together: Ms. Rosemary Farmer; Mrs. Betty Clark; Mrs. Jan Erdelen; Mrs. Debra Reynolds; Mrs. Rebecca Moring; and Dr. William A. Gardner,Jr., as well as the USA College of Medicine.

 Looking forward to seeing everyone in GRAZ, Austria, July, 1994.

INTRODUCTION

August 3-7, 1993, Mobile, AL., was the place to be. This year's conference was well attended with 83 registrants. Everyone in attendance was well pleased with the program and the nighttime forays. Wayne and Bill especially enjoyed themselves.

 Wolfgang Weber talked about and provided hands on demonstrations of sheet plastination. These specimens are the first actual brain slices to be done in the US. Most of them turned out to be fine teaching specimens.

 Other speakers included: Dr. Harmon Bickley; Dt: Bob Henry; Dr. Vincent Di Fabio; Ron Wade; Dale Ulmer; Tim Barnes; and the meeting host, USA Pathology Chairman, Dr. William A. Gardner, jr.

 Many good ideas were exchanged as speakers lectured and answered questions. Experienced plastinators mixed with first time conference attendees and shared many valuable tips and hints. Approximately one-half attending this conference were newcomers and were extremely interested in becoming part of and participating in our society.

 An informal meeting of members was held with many of the opinion that it is probably time to elect society officers in order to be more organized. This is to be on the agenda for '94 GRAZ meeting. Bill Wise has offered for the '95 Interim meeting to be held in Raleigh, NC, and most seemed highly receptive to this invitation. Good luck, Billi You'll do super.

 As the '93 Interim is history, I would be remiss if I didn't especially thank everyone for all the help and effort inputting this meeting together: Ms. Rosemary Farmer; Mrs. Betty Clark; Mrs. Jan Erdelen; Mrs. Debra Reynolds; Mrs. Rebecca Moring; and Dr. William A. Gardner,Jr., as well as the USA College of Medicine.

 Looking forward to seeing everyone in GRAZ, Austria, July, 1994.
