Research Notes 2017-1-2

Happy New Year! This is going to be a very exciting year for SAGS members. This year’s speaker lineup for our monthly meetings is quite impressive thanks to Judy Parino’s hard work. Our meeting schedule is changing. We are going back to afternoon meetings, but on the third Saturday of the month instead of the second. This schedule change gives us more time allowing us to include things like special interest groups and tutoring after each meeting.

Want more say in society operations? We sent out a test poll last week and will post more in the future. These polls give you an opportunity to help us create a society that supports all our members. Each poll allows members to do more than just select from several options. You are encouraged to add your own comments and suggestions. If you missed last week’s poll, you’ll find it here.
