40th Anniversary Celebration
Welcome to the Website home of our 40th Anniversary Celebration!
During this 40th year, SACNAS will celebrate its founders and their vision, look back on major events in the growth of the organization, and develop a model for a sustainable future, which will require involvement and commitment from everyone.
Throughout our anniversary year, we will update this page regularly with special feature stories, videos, photos, and information about events.
Please check this page regularly and get involved with the celebration!
40th Anniversary Stories & Resources
Note: These profiles are from the SACNAS Biography Project, a collection of nearly 80 biographies of SACNISTAS.These stories, written over the last 20 years, are in the present tense and from the first person perspective. Since they were first included in the collection, many of the narrators have retired or changed positions. However, the personal experiences and insights they share still ring true for a new generation of aspiring scientists.
Share Your Stories and Your Ideas
We especially want to share the stories of our founders and members and generate ideas to enrich this year. To share your story, please contact Jenny Kurzweil at [email protected].
2013 will be a special celebration of how much our community has accomplished in the past four decades and a call to action for the next 40 years. ¡Adelante y viva SACNAS! Moving forward!
