The Society of Sigma Gamma Epsilon (SGE), the national honorary society for the Earth sciences, held its 46th biennial convention (September 16-18, 2022) at satellite facilities of University of Tennessee at Martin (UT Martin) located in Selmer, Tennessee. The convention was hosted by SGE’s Eta Alpha Chapter and the Department of Agriculture, Geoscience, and Natural Resources at UT Martin. Ten (10) of SGE’s approximately 60 active chapters sent delegates to the convention. The traditional convention field trip, an outing to UT Martin’s Coon Creek Science Center, focused on collecting and preparing marine fossils from the Upper Cretaceous Coon Creek Formation. Key accomplishments of the convention include amending the Society’s constitution to reflect changes in membership categories, the adoption of a new mission statement, and broad-ranging discussions related to the revitalization of local chapters following the COVID-19 pandemic. This report provides details about the convention proceedings and provides the various reports presented by national officers, individual chapters, and student committees.
