Several seminars in science and engineering with prominent speakers from the Washington, DC area will be given each academic year. The Chapter will meet within the U.S. Naval Academy at a location announced to members in advance by email and other media. Normally, meeting will commence with a social period at 11:45 a.m. and the seminar at 12:15 p.m. Please contact Chapter Officers for information concerning upcoming seminars.
