    Dear MSOM Society Members:

    This is a reminder regarding three MSOM events that will be occurring at the upcoming INFORMS Annual meeting:

    1. The MSOM Business Meeting will be held on Monday, October 25th, 6:30 am – 7:45 am (Pacific). To increase audience engagement and facilitate conversations, the Business Meeting will be hosted using Zoom instead of a Webinar.
    2. The MSOM Reception will be held on Monday, October 25th, 6:15 pm (Pacific) in Convention Center 304D.  
      • As a reminder, for everyone's safety, only individually packaged food and drinks will be served.  We will take pictures of all the finalists and awardees who can be at the reception.
    3. The MSOM DEI Committee (Anupam Agrawal, So Yeon Chun, Jorge Mejia, Chris Parker, Siddharth Singh, and Terry Taylor) is hosting a panel discussion on parental leave policies on Tuesday, October 26th, 7:45 am – 9:00 am (Pacific). This is a continuation of the DEI session hosted at the MSOM Conference this past June.
