2018 Annual Meeting, March 2-4, Midland College (pictured above)

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 [email protected], and we will work to correct things.

 2018 Annual meeting program is available for download!  The 2018 Annual meeting program can be downloaded here.  A limited number of copies will be available for purchase at the registration desk.  People who pre-ordered printed copies will have first priority for them.

Voting for 2018 officers!  The voting has opened for the 2018 TAS Election.  You can use this link to access the list of candidates (with their bios) or if you are logged in, you can use the TAS elections link under the "members only" menu item.  Please note, anyone can view the candidates, but only current members are able to vote.  Voting will be open until Feb 15, at 11:00pm.  If you run into any problems, please contact Chris Vitek.

Lapsed membership?  Make sure to login, then use this link to access the membership renewal form! (note, new members can also use that link to join for the first time!)

Seeking new Executive Board member.  Unfortunately Chris Vitek will need to leave the executive board due to other commitments that are taking up too much of his time. We are looking for a new volunteer to serve as the Coordinator of Information Technology.  The ideal candidate will have strong computer skills and be comfortable with website design.  If interested or if you have questions, please contact Chris Vitek for more details.

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 [email protected]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.

Texas Journal of Science:  Andy Kasner has done an amazing job pushing the journal forward and is happy to report that we are now caught up!  We are currently accepting manuscripts for the next issue of the journal.  To submit a manuscript, please use the Texas Journal of Science menu item above.

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.

Christopher Vitek
Coordinator of Information Technology
