SMRN monthly meeting of July 30, 2022: Post-Event
On July 30, 2022, SMRN had another lively meeting with a group of members, including Pantea Karimi, Radek Przedpełski, J.R. Osborn, Laura Marks, Somayeh Khakshoor, Millie Chen, Azadeh Emadi, Sheila Petty, Masayuki Iwase, Çigdem Borucu, Jessika Kenney, and our guest participant Eyvind Kang.
In this meeting, we had no presentations so that we can have time to reflect on our beautiful SMRN event, A Light Footprint in the Cosmos, which took place in June 2022, and also to make collective decisions about the future plans of SMRN.
After talking about mostly the positive and inspiring outcomes of the Light Footprint in the Cosmos, all participants had an engaging discussion about internal administrative decisions, and among them, one that might be of a bit of interest to the reader of these lines was to have SMRN monthly meetings alternate between presentations and general meetings. This and the rest of the notes were later sent out to all members.
