Sunday, August 20, 6:30 – 9:00 p.m.

Tampa Marriott Waterside – Grand Ballroom and Foyer

Come visit with colleagues and old friends on the 2nd floor of our beautiful host hotel to kick off the 2017 AFS Meeting!  Some delicious Florida food and beverage will be provided, and the event is set in a great atmosphere overlooking the Marriott Waterside Marina set on Garrison Channel.  As a special opportunity, we will arrange a special pair up, where students and Early Career Professionals can spend a little bit of time with more experience professionals and senior AFS members.  This pair up is meant to allow individuals to meet and get acquainted with new friends at the beginning of the meeting and help with networking throughout the meeting.
