Elected member representatives on the Board of Directors agreed after careful deliberation that two policy changes needed to occur in this upcoming fiscal year. The changes focus on ensuring the future fiscal soundness of our Society, reducing the environmental impact of our operations, and facilitating greater capability to deliver value to the membership.
First, the annual dues for regular (Full or Associate) members were reduced to $90 (all other dues rates remained the same). Second, all active, dues-paying members will receive a digital version of American Scientist rather than a print edition, beginning with the July-August 2012 issue.
Active members who wish to receive the paper edition of the magazine may subscribe separately at the member-discounted rate of $20 at any time. Details for subscribing will be included in the May-June issue of American Scientist—as well as through other member communications.
The savings allow Sigma Xi to develop new services for its members and to support its chapters. Among the new services under consideration are professional development courses and a greatly enhanced digital experience both on our websites and with American Scientist.
To ensure that members have access to the digital edition, they are encouraged to verify that we have their current preferred e-mail address on file. To do so, members can log onto the Sigma Xi website
www.sigmaxi.org/addresschange and review their contact information. Or, they may e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call
800-243-6534 with their e-mail addresses.
