altPast President's Message

This is always a busy time of the year.  Whether you are completing finals, finishing grading, or planning to travel, please do not forget to register your vote in the Texas Academy of Science Board of Directors election for 2015.  Voting is only open to the end of December, which is the end of the TAS membership year.  I would like to warmly thank those members who agreed to run for office on the Academy's governing board.  Thank you for being willing to serve!  Now it is the job of the rest of us to cast our votes!  If you click on the "2015 Elections" link to the left, you will see the candidate's biography and the instructions for voting (you must be logged in to view this).  Don't delay - honor the commitment of your fellow members who were willing to accept the nominations to office.  

Abstract submittal for the upcoming Annual Meeting is still open!  On Friday, March 6, 2015, the Academy will convene its 118th Annual Meeting at the University of the Incarnate Word in historic San Antonio.  Get your abstract in now.  You can submit the abstract under the "Meetings" menu option to the left.  Click on "Meetings", then "Abstract Management".  You will need to create a new account for the abstract site, even if you submitted an abstract last year.

Please visit this site frequently over the next few months to get details about the upcoming meeting and other activities of the Academy. 



Cindy Hobson
Immediate Past President

PLEASE NOTE - if you were a student member who graduated, and want to remain a member, you will need to rejoin the Academy as a new "regular" member.
