Chapter Annual Reports

Chapter Reports Deadline: May 16, 2021

Our chapters are a powerful peer network that provides support for STEM students throughout their journey as future scientists and leaders. The Annual Report allows the SACNAS national office to learn about the activities, resources, and tools chapters are creating in their communities, as well as ways to offer increased support.

This report is required of all chapters to retain active status and be eligible to submit a Chapter Award Application.
