The April 2018 issue of the Geophysical Society of Houston Journal is out and my Word From The Board with it on Page 4. The short essay is called GSH Into The Future. Here are a couple of key excerpts.
Coming up on the year 2020, is the scientific society still relevant? If so, what sort of community do young scientists want?
.. tomorrow’s GSH relies on your active contribution to the conversation today. We ask you to engage with us on Facebook and Twitter to share your thoughts on these topics:
• What activities make GSH valuable to you?
• How would you measure the success of these activities?
• Finally and most importantly, in my opinion, how are you willing to motivate yourself and
attract other busy geophysics professionals to volunteer effectively?
Let’s see what answers we receive. The Facebook crowd is usually pretty responsive.
