First of all, my
sincere thanks to all of you for your participation in the UCAR October
meetings this past week--it was an exciting week for us as we wrapped
up the past year of our 40th Anniversary celebrations! We hope you enjoyed
the festivities, and found the meetings productive. It's clear that there
are many interesting and important issues for our community to tackle
both in the near-term and in the years ahead. We thank you for the
time and energy you spent in the Members' Forum and other discussions
in the meetings throughout the week. These discussions are a useful part
of the UCAR, NCAR and UCAR Office of programs planning process.
We invite your continued participation over this next year, especially
as we move toward a strategic plan for NCAR.
This website contains
links to follow-up information for all the meetings, including downloadable
slides of the electronic presentations. In the near future, we will link
the forum break-out group summaries and include an opportunity to continue
Again my thanks
for all of your ideas, suggestions, and good conversations. It was
a productive week!
