Dear Friends:

For a number of years, the Graduate Education Committee (GEC) has hosted a
reception on the Friday (5:00-6:30 pm) during which prospective graduate
students could meet Directors of Graduate Study from departments with
graduate programs during the AMS.

Since Attendance numbers have declined recently, we would like to know
whether prospective students and departmental representatives would like to
keep the GEC reception or whether they prefer to meet individually or at
departmental receptions, where they may be able to talk with more faculty
as well as current graduate students and alumni/ae.

To aid us in determining whether to hold our reception as in the past or to
move in other directions, we have created a quick poll for prospective
graduate students and for Directors of Graduate Studies, Graduate Admission
Chairs, and Department Chairs.  The poll will take *two minutes*
 to complete.

Please complete the survey *by July 31, 2016*.

Best wishes,
