UCAR2004 October Meetings

Original Meeting Site

Thanks to all of you for attending the October Meetings earlier this month. We appreciate your participation in the discussions and hope you found the informal conversations with UCAR, NCAR, UOP and university colleagues productive. These are very challenging and interesting times for our science, for NSF, and for UCAR. I look forward to working with the Board, the Members, Affiliates, and URC as we address increased pressure on the federal science budgets, the next set of reviews, and the competition for the management of NCAR. We will keep you updated as we proceed.

Below you will find links to a meeting summary and to the ppt presentations made during the Member's Meeting. Please forward this url to your colleagues, and let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you again for taking time out of your schedules to attend these meetings.
