The afternoon was off to a good start for the blogging team. We started at the MAA Project NExT reception to celebrate 25 years of Project NeXt. We met fellow NExTers and got some valuable lessons on networking etiquette from NExT director David Kung and current AMS Congressional Fellow James Ricci. Apparently one should always say “nice to see you” rather than “nice to meet you” just in case, and you should always hold your drink in the left hand to avoid the dreaded clammy handshake (a piece of advice that I apparently failed to internalize).
