The Future is Now

As a follow up to last year's celebration of the 125th Anniversary of Sigma Xi, the 2012 Annual Meeting focused on the future of science and the Society.

Assembly of Delegates:  The Future of Sigma Xi
In order to make the Annual Meeting more accessible and cost-effective, we held the meeting virtually.  Members may join chapter delegates and attend the 2013 Meeting online.

In addition to the governance, the 2012 Annual Meeting featured three invited speakers:

  • Dr. Glenn Schweitzer provided a presentation with the title “Bilateral Science Diplomacy: Then and Now.”
  • Susan B. Butts provided a presentation with the title "Reflections On A Career In Industry."
  • E. William Colglazier provided a presentation with the title "Science and Diplomacy."
