Dr. Terry Conley, Dean of Cameron University’s School of Science and Technology, has been elected to serve as president-elect of the Oklahoma Academy of Science. Following the completion of his two-year term, which begins January 1, 2014, Conley will then serve as president of the organization.
Conley first became involved with OAS in 1976 when he was an undergraduate student at Northwestern Oklahoma State University. Since then, he has attended numerous OAS technical meetings and field meetings. Conley played a significant role in OAS’s recent annual technical meeting and the concurrent Wichita Mountains Symposium, which were held at Cameron in early November.
The mission of OAS is to stimulate scientific research through encouragement of fraternal relationships and the sharing of ideas among Oklahomans working in the sciences. The organization fosters knowledge through meetings and science-related publications for all Oklahomans interested in the sciences. OAS is affiliated with the National Association of the Academies of Science and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
