In September 30, more than 100 APS Fellows located in the Northeast convened at the Yale Club of New York City for a Fellows Reception. Such receptions employ a regional approach and are intended to provide a vehicle for recognizing APS Fellows and informing them about the Society's activities.

APS President D. Allan Bromley (Yale University) chaired the New York reception, which featured presentations on APS public policy issues, an October planning meeting on international collaboration plans for the upcoming APS Centenary, and the success of the APS Campaign for Physics, followed by a question and answer session.

Receptions held prior to the New York Fellows Reception included Cambridge, Mass., and Stanford and Berkeley, Calif.

Another Fellows reception was held on November 12 at the American Center for Physics and was chaired by APS Vice President Jerome Friedman of MIT (more details to come to come in a future edition of APS News).

In addition, receptions are planned for Los Angeles, Calif., and Chicago, Ill., early in 1998.
