Message from the President
Member Engagement is Key to Our Success: A Note From AGU’s New President Carol Finn
I joined the AGU Earth and space science community as a 22-year-old green-haired graduate student eager to experience excellent, societally relevant science, to network, and to find role models. At my first Fall Meeting, I was inspired by the community of scientists, ranging from fellow graduate students to luminaries, who were engrossed, excited, and motivated by their science. Imagine my surprise when I was singled out, not just for my green hair, but to join the Budget and Finance Committee!
