Past President's Message
This time of year reminds me of the anticipation of a new semester and new courses, even though it has been many years since I was a student. Whether you are a student, faculty member, or professional scientist, you should be thinking ahead to the next Annual Meeting of the Academy. In just a few months it will be time to submit your abstract, so this is the ideal time to make plans to present your work. On Friday, March 6, 2015, the Academy will convene its 118th Annual Meeting at the University of the Incarnate Word in historic San Antonio. Thank you to UIW for agreeing to host us in 2015!
Most of you should have received a pleasant surprise in your mailboxes recently – the Texas Journal of Science, volume 63, issues 1 and 2. Managing Editor Andrew Kasner took over leadership of the Journal last year, and has been working hard to get the long-delayed issues of the Journal out the door. Both issues 1 and 2 were published under one cover, instead of as separate mailings, as part of his strategy to get the back issues of the Journal caught up efficiently. Please be sure to thank Dr. Kasner for his hard work and service to the Academy in this role!
If you are reading this, you have probably noticed a very different look to the TAS website. Our new web presence will allow automation of our membership database, more interaction between members through the website, and integration of payment methods with the website. Coordinator of Information Technology Chris Vitek is responsible for the migration of TAS to our new home on the web. Thank you, Dr. Vitek!
