Report of the National Association of Academies of Science (NAAS) Delegates.

The annual meeting is held in conjunction with the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). The NAAS sponsors during this time the American Junior Academy of Science (AJAS) that brought together 130 high school delegates and their chaperones. These delegates are chosen by the 46 state and regional academies who are members of the NAAS. At the meeting, the students give a poster presentation in conjunction with the AAAS, give oral presentations, attend some of the AAAS sessions, and have scientific tours. Since attendance is an honor, no judgment is made of the presentations and posters. AJAS also has a breakfast with the delegates and representatives from the science community attending the AAAS meeting.

The NAAS holds it annual business meeting and a workshop during this time. Don Jordan is one of the two NAAS members on the AAAS Council as well as doing the NAAS newsletter. John Safko is the NAAS treasurer.

The next meeting will have a joint session with representatives of the National Academy of Science (NAS) to discuss encouraging research at all levels.
