Each new associate member will prepare a presentation of their research for our next chapter meeting.  At this meeting, you will either give a 10 minute oral presentation or present a poster describing your research.  We will have refreshments available and there will be time for informal discussions of your work.

Those giving oral presentations can use the computer and projector equipment for PowerPoint 2007.  You will need to provide your PowerPoint files in advance.  Posters will be presented in the second floor Atrium where display boards will be available.  Your presentation may be an explanation of the project and the results, or it can be a progress report if the work is not yet finished.

  ● Please complete this form by Friday, January 21.

PowerPoint files for the 10 minute presentations should be given or sent to Kelly Atkins (biology/physics secretary at Augustana) no later than 10:00 am on Thursday, Jan. 27.  Her office is Science 301 (7:00 to 3:00 weekdays) and her e-mail is  It is best to give her large files via a flash drive.  Smaller files may be sent as an e-mail attachment.  Please place your last name at the beginning of the file name.  These files will be loaded on the computer in the classroom in advance so the presentations will transition smoothly.
