President's Message

May 2, 2022

Dear SRI Colleagues,

First – we have great news regarding the SRI 2023 meeting in Brisbane - Australia has fully reopened its borders after two years! Things are really looking good. Brisbane sits on Australia’s Gold Coast, between Sydney and a variety of Great Barrier Reef destinations. Please watch for updates regarding airfare discounts and travel opportunities for before or after the Brisbane meeting.

Dues renewal for the 2023 year is upon us! To those who have already renewed your SRI dues for another year - thank you for your continued support of this wonderful Society and our mission. Please know that each year, your membership dues directly supports the success of our annual meeting and advancing the SRI’s mission through committee work, hosting webinars and virtual networking events for trainees, and ensuring that communication from the SRI remains current and up-to-date.

To those who have not yet renewed your dues, and might be undecided about maintaining your SRI membership, let me highlight a few reasons why you should strongly consider remaining a member of the Society:

  • Build your community within SRI- I have made some lifelong friendships through my >40 years of membership in the SRI. As an SRI member, you become a part of a global network that is readily available to you through the SRI Membership Directory.
  • Partake in online education- The SRI, through the work of the SRI 365 Committee, Career Development Committee and others, is responsible for organizing webinars. These online educational sessions are completely free for members!
  • Receive discounted registration to the Annual Meeting- Planning for Brisbane has already started! Make sure you begin your personal planning early, and lock in a reduced registration fee by staying current with your membership. Additionally, SRI will be offering more trainee travel grants than usual for the 2023 SRI Annual meeting.
  • Post and browse jobs through SRI website- Graduation is right around the corner, and whether you are looking for a new position, or have open positions in your lab that you wish to fill, the SRI Job Board is completely free for members.

These are just a few examples of how your membership in SRI can shape your career moving forward. Consider renewing your membership for another year (or two!) and see what SRI can do for you!

Through the Membership Dues renewal process, you can also donate directly to the SRI 70th Anniversary campaign. The 2023 Annual Meeting in Brisbane marks the 70th year of the Society for Reproductive Investigation, and I am honored to act as the President during this banner year! All donations made to the 70th Anniversary campaign will benefit the SRI Foundation. With every donation, the Foundation is one-step closer to our $1 million goal that must be reached before we can begin dispersing funds for grants and trainee awards.
