Sigma Xi is proud to acknowledge
the 2006 Platinum Sponsor

Each November, Sigma Xi leaders and highly motivated undergraduate students gather to share information, ideas and camaraderie at the Sigma Xi Annual Meeting and Student Research Conference. Delegates from Sigma Xi chapters decide key governance questions of the Society and attend educational sessions on leadership, chapter management and major issues facing the research enterprise. Simultaneously, undergraduates from over one hundred institutions around the world present their research, attend career-focused workshops, meet graduate school recruiters and network with Sigma Xi members.

...the interactions at the (2005) Annual Meeting in Seattle,
which contained a combination of posters, talks and
informal events, were a great way to get to know other
chapter officers. The meeting also helped us share and
better understand our own work and the ways that
Sigma Xi can enhance the academic experience.
