Welcome to the NEW Texas Academy of Science website.  We have been working this summer to migrate to a new software system that will provide enhancements to the website, conference registration, and generally make things easier for you, our members.  If you notice any problems or issues (especially links that don't work!) please send a note to website@texasacademyofscience.org, and we will work to correct things.

We are also launching the new website with a contest.  As you can see above, we have merged the images we used on the previous website for the banner image.  However, we want input from you, our members.  If you have an image you want to see used, please send it to website@texasacademyofscience.org.  The images must be 2000 pixels wide by 400 pixels high.  We will look through the images sent and use these on our home page.  We encourage you to submit images on your home campus, Texas scenery, or pictures from previous TAS meetings. 

It is never too soon to start thinking about the next meeting!  Next years meeting will be held on March 2-4, at Midland College in Midland, TX.  Abstract submission will begin sometime in October and go through the end of the calendar year.  Watch the website for more details!

Texas Journal of Science:  Andy Kasner and Alan Nelson continue to work tirelessly to get the Journal caught up.  Volume 67 (2015) should be going out within a month and the 2016 volume(s) will follow shortly thereafter.  By the 2017 annual meeting, I hope to report to everyone that the Journal will be caught up!  We are also now actively seeking new manuscript submissions so please consider the Texas Journal of Science as you prepare future manuscripts.

Get Involved: TAS needs you!  One of the great things about TAS is its fundamental structure - the Academy's operations are handled exclusively by volunteers.  Join now to start getting involved, and if you are a current member, think about getting more involved - we are always looking for volunteers (section chairs, meeting hosts, board members, and more!).

TAS Statement in Support of Science:  On April 22, there are numerous Earth day and science activities planned throughout the state.  In support of science education and research, and to reflect TAS's general support of science, the TAS board has approved the following statement.

Coordinator of Information Technology
