Please plan on attending the branch’s annual meeting on March 21, 2017. It is an important meeting as we will be electing officers to fill open positions. The nominating committee will present a slate of officer candidates and nominations will be accepted from the floor prior to voting. Also, the proposed branch document archival with the University of Houston library will be presented for membership approval. A quorum of 20% of branch membership (50 members) is required to vote on these issues.

Our featured speaker for this meeting will be Heloise Lynn, Ph.D., whose mother was an active AAUW member. Her topic will be “Life Changes Through the Decades: Student – Wage Earner – Forest Dweller/Retiree…And Beyond.”

As a consultant for the last 30 years, Dr. Lynn has worked field datasets from around the world: Saudi Arabia, Australia, China, Pakistan, North America, etc. In 2015, she was presented with the Fessenden Award by the Society of Exploration Geophysicists, for her life-time contributions on the analysis of field data containing evidence of azimuthal anisotropy.
