The 2022 Sigma Xi Chapter Award winners were announced on November 3 at the Society's annual Assembly of Delegates. The festivities kicked off the inaugural International Forum on Research Excellence (IFoRE) in Alexandria, Virginia. Finalists were chosen by regional and constituency directors based on information in the chapters’ annual reports, and winners were selected by the Committee on Qualifications and Membership.

The Assembly of Delegates is an annual gathering of chapter representatives worldwide to act on business and governance items, as authorized by the Society's bylaws and constitution. Delegates vote on governance decisions and resolutions that guide Sigma Xi’s mission and vision, including decisions related to programs, chapters, membership, and IFoRE. After conducting the business of the Society, delegates participate in IFoRE in a variety of ways, including as organizers, speakers, presenters, judges, award recipients, mentors, and artists.
