2021 AFG Breakfast Proceedings

The AsMA Associate Fellows Group held a very successful Breakfast during the recent Aerospace Medical Association meeting in Denver. Retiring AFG Leadership Team member, Dr Swee Weng “Buzzlite” Fan, kindly volunteered as the offical AFG photographer for the occasion, and has produced this fabulous slideshow of the Breakfast proceedings, which can be viewed on YouTube: https://youtu.be/RXtUfU10tGo. Our sincere thanks go to Dr Fan! 🤩

2021 Invitation

Dear AFG Members,

It is our great pleasure to invite you, together with the 2020 and 2021 classes of new Fellows from within the AFG, to attend our annual AFG Breakfast and business meeting at the forthcoming AsMA 91st Annual Scientific Meeting in Denver.

The Breakfast will be held from 07:00 to 08:30 MDT on Tuesday 31 August in the Windows Room at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel. Tickets are US$50, and can be purchased through AsMA. There is a hard deadline of Thursday August 26th for ticket purchase.

As is customary, we are expecting to have a number of guest speakers from within the AsMA Executive as well as the Chair of the Fellows Group, Dr Warren Silberman. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear their invaluable insights!

In addition, we will be inducting the new members of the AFG, and conferring the Ellingson Awards for both 2020 and 2021 as well as the AFG’s own Service Awards.

This year’s poster is attached. We would also like to mention that the AFG Breakfast is open to “all comers”, so feel free to invite colleagues, friends and family if you would like to share this occasion with them.

2020 Invitation

Dear Associate Fellows,

It is my great pleasure to invite those of you going to the AsMA Annual Scientific Meeting in Atlanta to join us for the Associate Fellows Group (AFG) Breakfast on Tuesday, May 19 (please refer to the poster below for further information). Anyone with an interest in the AFG is welcome to attend, so please feel free to bring family, friends or significant others. In order to secure your place, please book by 12 noon on Sunday, May 17.

As part of conducting the Annual Business Meeting of the AFG, we will be inducting the next cohort of new Associate Fellows, presenting the Ellingson Award and our annual Service Awards, providing information about this year’s Call for Nominations and inviting expressions of interest for open vacancies, and conducting a Q&A session for prospective members.

More news will follow about this year’s special guest speakers.

Once the March issue of Aerospace Medicine and Human Performance is available, the AFG Scientific Program Committee will prepare a collation of AFG members who are acting as Session Chairs and/or presenting at AsMA (whether that be as part of a workshop or panel, or a slide or poster presentation). We encourage you to scan through the list of sessions and abstract details, and to show your support for your fellow AFG members by attending their sessions or presentations.
See you in Atlanta!

With all good wishes,
Rowena
