Join us in Rapid City for the 2019 GWIS National Conference which will be held June 20-22 at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology (SD Mines). The theme of this year’s conference is “Communicating Science to Connect, Lead, and Empower”!

On Friday we will host the Grand Chapter meeting. Everyone is welcome, and Chapter Presidents and National Liaisons are especially encouraged to attend.

For individuals not attending the Grand Chapter meeting on Friday, we have all sorts of activities planned! We have the option of a full day trip to receive a tour of the Sanford Underground Research Facility (SURF) - SURF is located 4,850 feet below ground and is home to world-leading research in physics, biology, geology, and engineering. For shorter activities, we will be offering multiple one-hour tours of the South Dakota School of Mines’ Museum of Geology, or participate in an afternoon Science Communication Workshop.

On Saturday, our “Communicating Science to Connect, Lead, and Empower” conference will begin at 11 am in the Surbeck Ballroom at SD Mines. We will begin with a welcome address, followed by lunch and an opening speaker. We will then have a panel and three speakers who will give tips and share their experiences on communicating.
