PASS events such as the annual conference and the Late Year Benefit Concert (both are great fun). Networking with other colleagues makes getting started a lot easier.

Is there a special anecdote that you associate with PASS?

Although older foods are continuously and consistently disposed of in the refrigerator, milk was not simply thrown away as "in daily use". I have learned that even lactose-free milk can become bad at some point and explode after a while.
