Gamma Sigma Delta is a faculty-governed society that selects its members from junior and senior students, graduate students, faculty, and alumni for the promotion and recognition of high achievement. While Gamma Sigma Delta is an honor society of agriculture, it may elect members from related fields such as biology, botany, chemistry, economics, entomology, forestry, home economics, plant pathology, sociology, statistics, veterinary medicine, or zoology when the work of the individuals is related to agriculture. Officers, committee chairpersons, and others leading the chapter are faculty or alumni.
The reception also featured the installation of Dr. Michael O. Smith as chapter president for 2006-2007. Dr. Ernie Bazen will serve as president-elect for 2007-2008. Dr. William Hart will continue as treasurer, Dr. Clark Brekke will serve as secretary, and Emily Gray will continue to serve as historian. Dr. George Grandle will further assist the officer slate as the immediate past president.
