Call for presentations

(Press Release) — The Asia Pacific Academy of Sciences, Science Education, and Environmental Management or APASEEM is presently putting forth this call for presentations for its upcoming annual meeting on Nov 8 and 9, 2017 with a possible addition of Nov 7.

APASEEM is pleased to encourage regional scientists, science teachers, and resource managers to contribute announcements via its website, at

Please help us distribute announcement widely to all on your professional contacts list.

This year APASEEM is looking to mesh its conference schedule to other events in the hopes of saving on flights and expenses for presenters and attendees alike. As in the past, APASEEM has reserved American Memorial Park auditorium, which seats up to 112 people, as the venue for the conference.

All interested science and environmental professionals — and teachers and students of these disciplines — are encouraged to develop a 15- to 20-minute presentation on their recent work which may be of interest to the CNMI’s science, science education, and environmental management community. To get scheduled on the meetings’ agenda, just contact any APASEEM officer. A topical title and a brief abstract (one paragraph) of your talk will help APASEEM better advertise the conference, so please send us these at your earliest convenience. For examples please see past years’ talks on the APASEEM website.

“We are also using this opportunity to continue our ongoing membership drive. Please spread the word that we mostly operate on annually due membership fees and contributions. If you’ve been thinking about becoming a dues-paying active member, or if your affiliation or agency is able to do so, please encourage this and join APASEEM.

“Two reminders; most of us find it easy to pay at or around the date of our annual conference, and fees for professional organizations are tax deductible. Please note speakers get half off on annual fees if they’ve presented sometime during the previous year.

“Group rates are available for any organization, public or private, see website for fees and mailing address. Potential new members and/or potential group officers are highly encouraged to make contact with us.”

As background, the updated academy’s synopsis document is included on the APASEEM website.

Contact Michael Trianni (president) via; or John Furey (vice president) via; or Andre Kozij (treasurer) via; or roy adsit (secretary) to get on this year’s conference schedule.
