MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

Greetings VGP-ers,

We need volunteers to serve on the Education and Outreach and OSTP (Outstanding Student Paper) committees. These committees make VGP relevant to the public, other AGU sections, and organization beyond our section. I invite all of you to participate by joining one of our committees. By doing so, you are demonstrating your ability and desire to move the science and to be a leader. Please sign up with me and/or Michael Manga and help us out.

In 2019, AGU will celebrate its centennial year since inception. There are plenty of ideas for ways to celebrate the past, present, and future of AGU. All VGP past and present leadership, welcome your suggestions for how to honor and celebrate AGU this year. Please write to Michael and I with ideas for VGP contributions.

AGU Fall Meeting (10-14 December) this year will be in Washington, D.C. please consider submitting an abstract for the meeting.
