is immensely grateful for the scientists, policymakers, artists, community leaders, board members, donors, and concerned citizens who made our 2018 Annual Dinner & Meeting
a resounding success!
The Annual Dinner featured an all-star lineup, with inspiring words that brought the audience to their feet from Governor Jerry Brown, Rieser Award recipient Yangyang Cheng, and honoree Lee Francis.
A discussion with former Secretary of Defense and Bulletin Board of Sponsors chair William Perry, Ambassador Joseph Yun, and Bulletin president Rachel Bronson capped off a day of compelling discussions.
