The New York Section of the Society for Applied Spectroscopy typically meets once a month in the metro-New York City or Northern New Jersey area.  Meeting locations vary but they include local colleges or university settings, and conference locations. Virtual meetings have also been added to increase participation.  One of our more important endeavors is to sponsor the Gold Medal Award Symposium each year at the Eastern Analytical Symposium and Exposition (EAS)In summer we hold a celebration banquet and take the opportunity to thank our members and sponsors as well as present awards to local graduate and undergraduate students who have excelled in spectroscopic research.
All are welcome, so please join us!
