  • Two great events-March 25th and 26th

    Dear Members,
    This year, the VT Chapter of Sigma Xi received a Distinguished Lecturer subsidy from the National Office. We will be hosting Dr. James Costa, director of the Highlands Biological Station at Western Carolina University and the author of Darwin’s Backyard: How small experiments led to a big theory.


    Monday March 25th 5:30-7 PM: Science on Tap @ Rising Silo Brewery.  Jim will speak about how
    Darwin made major breakthroughs by playing around
    outside and listening to his kids' ideas in a talk entitled "Darwin's Backyard: Experimentising".  We'll have some hands-on activities, and appetizer for audience members, as well as a book signing.

    Tuesday March 26, 12-1 PM: Scientific lecture, Fralin Auditorium.  In this talk, entitled "Indefatigable Naturalists:Darwin and Wallace on the Evolutionary Trail" Jim will trace the independent development
    of Wallace’s and Darwin’s evolutionary insights,
    exploring the fascinating parallels, intersections,
    and departures in their thinking.

    Join us for one or both!

    Seminar and Science on Tap announcements are online at the VT Sigma Communities.  Please feel free to hang them around VT and the community.

  • New outreach opportunity from Sigma Xi

    The Ohio State Chapter of Sigma Xi has a new outreach opportunity! In partnership with Bloom Carroll High School, Sigma Xi members will have the chance to mentor high school students as they prepare projects for the 2019 State Science Day science fair competition.  Mentors will be accessible to students via email and/or phone to provide constructive general feedback, and have two one-on-one meetings with students in the coming year.  Project areas include Microbiology, Biomedical Science, Environmental Science, Botany, Chemistry, and more! However, a mentor does not need to specialize in the same area as the project interest in order to assist a student.  If you would like to serve as a mentor, please contact Bailey Dye (bailey.dye@nationwidechildrens.org).

    SIGMA XI, THE SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH HONOR SOCIETY
     
    Duties of Directors in Sigma Xi

    Duties:  Directors are members of the Society’s Board of Directors that is principally responsible for managing the activities, property, and affairs of the Society in accordance with the policies established by the Assembly.  The Board of the Society simultaneously serves as the Board of the Corporation (Sigma Xi, The Scientific Research Honor Society, Inc.), which is the legal entity, holding title to the society’s assets and responsible for managing the property, affairs, and financial business of the Society.  In carrying out these responsibilities, Directors are the primary liaisons between the Board and the chapters in their appropriate region or constituency group.  Directors also conduct meetings of their region or constituency group at the Society’s annual meeting each November, and are responsible for working with, giving advice to, and contributing to the health of the chapters in their region or constituency.  Also, throughout the year, Officers and Directors are expected to remain abreast of Society activities by reading the Executive Director’s monthly updates and other Society communications, and by replying to email ballots on business matters of a time-sensitive nature.

    As adopted by the Board of Directors on 3 November 2005: “The Board of Directors has fiduciary and other legal responsibilities to provide oversight to the policies and operations of Sigma Xi.”

    The Board of Directors as a whole has the following responsibilities:
    1. To set policy and establish goals for the Society, propose modifications to the Constitution and Bylaws as necessary.
    2. To hire the Executive Director and to evaluate his/her performance by reviewing the report of the Performance Review Committee and to determine his/her compensation.
    3. To review and approve the Society’s annual budget as recommended by the Committee on Finances.
    4. To generate resources for the Society.
    5. To review performance of the Board and each Standing Committee Chair and additionally the composition, skills, balance and diversity periodically (at least every 2 years).

    Individual Board members have the following responsibilities:
    1. To be familiar with the Society programs, history, mission, organizational structure, and Strategic Plan.
    2. To advocate the Society among peers and in the community.
    3. To provide financial resources at any level through regular contributions, including an annual gift, according to individual means, including augmentation by in-kind contributions.
    4. To identify potential sources of support and to participate in solicitations and other fundraising efforts as needed.
    5. To attend Board Meetings.
    6. To serve on Society committees as required and attend meetings of those committees.
    7. To attend Sigma Xi events.
    8. To contribute wisdom and talent to fashion and promote Society practices and programs.
    9. To represent the membership.
    10. To participate actively in the revitalization of chapters and the recruitment and retention of members within their appropriate region or constituency.

    Time Commitment:  The largest, single time commitment for Directors is the Society’s annual meeting in early November that normally runs from Tuesday evening through Sunday noon.  During this time, Directors participate in meetings of the Board of Directors of the Society and of the Corporation, conduct meetings of their region or constituency, and participate in the Assembly of Delegates and other activities of the meeting.  The Board also meets in spring each year in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina (normally in April) for a meeting that runs all day at a date convenient to all.  Between Board meetings, much of the business of the Society is conducted electronically, including much of the communication between the Directors and the chapters in their region or constituency.  Sigma Xi sub-vents expenses for Directors to attend meetings of the Board, including expenses associated with the annual meeting.
  • Nominations for Mid-Atlantic Associate Director

    The Mid-Atlantic Region of Sigma Xi is soliciting nominations for the position of an Associate Director.  The duties of associate director are given below.  Nominations must be submitted to the Regional Director, Frank Dane (fcdane@jchs.edu) by July 2, 2018 in order to meet deadlines for the Sigma Xi Election which will be conducted from October 29, 2018 to November 27, 2018  via electronic means. Only active (dues-paying) full members are eligible for office. Each candidate must submit a picture, a statement, biographical summary and a paragraph describing his/her activities with Sigma Xi and other organizations. A sample statement, biography, and description of activities can be found at https://www.sigmaxi.org/about/leadership/elections/candidate-statement-examples.

     
    SIGMA Xi, THE SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH HONOR SOCIETY

    Duties of Associate Directors in Sigma Xi

    Associate Directors were incorporated into the Society's governance structure in 1998 as part of Sigma Xi's new governance structure. There are 11 Associate Directors in Sigma Xi, one each from 5 of the 6 constituency groups and one each from all 6 geographic regions. (The Membership-at-Large constituency group has elected not to have an Associate Director.) Associate Directors are elected by their respective group or region at the Society's November annual meeting to serve three years from 1 July following their election.

    Duties: Associate Directors assist the Directors of their region or constituency group with responsibilities that are defined differently for each region or constituency group. When requested by the Director, the Associate Director may attend and vote at a meeting of the Board of Directors in place of the Director. Also, Associate Directors may be requested to conduct meetings of their region or constituency group at Sigma Xi's annual meeting each November in the absence of the Director.

    Time Commitment: Much of the work of Associate Directors is conducted electronically. However, if the Associate Director is asked by the Director to attend a meeting of the Board in the Director's absence that would require a commitment of Tuesday evening through Wednesday evening at Sigma Xi's annual meeting or one day  for the spring Board meeting, usually in April in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. If attending a meeting of the Board in place of the Director, the Society sub-vents expenses for the Associate Director to attend. If the Associate Director is asked to conduct meetings of the region or constituency group at the Society's annual meeting in place of the Director, the Associate Director's expenses for attending the annual meeting are paid by the Society. Finally, if the Associate Director wishes to attend the annual meeting when the Director also is attending, Sigma Xi will cover the travel expenses only for the Associate Director.

  • Calling for nominations to the Executive Committee

    Dear URI Sigma Xi members,

    During the last two years, the current executive committee comprised of Dr. Bryan Dewsbury (President), Dr. Evan Preisser (Treasurer), and Aura Grandidge (Secretary) have been trying to re-activate our local chapter. An important step in achieving this goal is to hold elections by July 1st, as described in our bylaws. We will be collecting nominations for the following positions:

    **President –elect: In the absence of the president of the chapter, the president-elect assumes the responsibilities of president. Therefore, it is essential that these two officers maintain close communication on the operations of the chapter in order to provide for smooth operation of the group in the president's absence. In addition, the president-elect will also serve as the program chair for the chapter, and in this capacity will initiate and carry out the chapter's activities for the year. In undertaking this responsibility, the president-elect will be familiar with the activities that have been sponsored by the chapter in the past. The president-elect will explore new activities for the chapter that may be of interest to the group's membership. After the president-elect period has concluded (July 1, 2019), the President-elect becomes the president. The president should reside over chapter activities, take responsibility for appointing delegates to the Annual Meeting and respond on behalf of the chapter to non-routine requests, inquiries, or opportunities from Sigma Xi Administrative Offices or the Board of Directors.

    **Treasurer: The treasurer is also responsible for all matters involving the transfer of funds between the chapter and headquarters.

    **Secretary: The secretary of a chapter is responsible for maintaining the regular flow of information to and from other officers, the membership and Sigma Xi Administrative Offices. Sigma Xi's Administrative Offices invites chapter secretaries to call for assistance if they have any questions that relate to the performance of their duties.

    If you are interested in taking a leadership role in defining the future path of URI’s Sigma Xi Chapter and you are an active member of the society, please send Aura e-mail (afgrandidge@uri.edu) with your name, contact information, as well as a brief paragraph describing your interest in the position by June 15th 2018 at 5:00pm.

    Elections will be held electronically from June 18 through June 29th.

    Sincerely,

    The executive committee of Sigma Xi’s URI Chapter
