Many of you are engaged in undergraduate research in your classes, and you may be presenting some of that work at the college’s Undergraduate Research Fair and/or at the University of Oregon’s Undergraduate Research Symposium. Many of you are also wonderful fiction writers, painters, photographers, poets, song writers, and other types of writers and artists. It’s time to start publishing your work!
At Saturday’s Awards Gala, our chapter received several awards! In addition to being recognized as a three-star chapter, we also received a Rising Star Award for our chapter activities and development; a REACH Award for recruiting; and a Horizon Award for chapter advising.
Next year’s convention will hopefully be in person. If it is, it will be at Umpqua Community College, where this year’s convention was supposed to have been held. Our members will be there, and we plan to be a four-star chapter by then!
Our Regional Coordinator, Michelle Gietl, and the regional officers have done an amazing job creating a virtual Spring Convention! May 15 and 16 are packed with presentations and workshops with topics ranging from scholarships to public speaking to what to do once you are a chapter officer. There is also an awards gala on May 16 from 5:00-7:00 PST.
If you’ve registered, you’ll receive the schedule in an email message.
