   Cincinnati Federal Environmental Chapter

Welcome !

The Cincinnati Federal Environmental Chapter of Sigma Xi welcomes you to its Home Page. This Chapter of Sigma Xi is composed of members drawn from the various federal research organizations based in the Cincinnati area. The majority of our members are now, or once have been, affiliated with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency or the National Institute for Occupational Health and Safety. Both of these federal organizations have had a strong presence in the Cincinnati area for many years. Cincinnati is also home to our sister Sigma Xi Chapter at the University of Cincinnati.

Several lectures are presented on a variety of topics at various times of the year by invited speakers. On occasion, events are collaborated with other local scientific and engineering organizations. We invite you all to attend any event hosted by the chapter, but please let us know you are planning to attend, as locations sometimes are space-restricted.

Annual Chapter Activities:

  • Aaron Rosen Memorial Coffee/Lecture This event is held in late winter/early spring at the EPA Andrew W. Breidenbach Research Center (AWBERC) building across from the University of Cincinnati.

  • Conrad P. Straub Memorial Dinner/Lecture A late fall/early winter lecture held at a central location in the Cincinnati area.
