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 theÂ year 2020, is the scientific society still relevant? If so,Â what sort of community do young scientists want?
.. tomorrow’s GSH relies on your active contribution to the conversation today. We ask you toÂ engage with us on Facebook and Twitter to shareÂ your thoughts on these topics:
â€¢ What activities make GSH valuable to you?
â€¢ How would you measure the success of theseÂ activities?
â€¢ Finally and most importantly, in my opinion,Â how are you willing to motivate yourself and
attract other busy geophysics professionals toÂ volunteer effectively?
Let’s see what answers we receive. The Facebook crowd is usually pretty responsive.
