INMM-VCU meeting

VCU's Institute of Nuclear Materials Management chapter is having a meeting Wednesday, November 18, at 6:00 PM with Ambassador Bonnie Jenkins talking about her experience in nonproliferation, peace, and security. I believe this talk may be of interest to several of your HSEP students because it will be non-technical and will likely cover topics related to homeland security. The Zoom link is https://vcu.zoom.us/j/99082409624.

 

Please see the attached flyer for more details.
