On behalf of the board, I invite you to join us for the UNAVCO Annual Meeting Tuesday, evening. It follows the nearby Geodesy Section Reception at 6:30 p.m. (SF Marriott Marquis Golden Gate B).
As for last year, we will have table seating and refreshments. The committee and treasurer's reports will be in a handout for you to peruse. We will introduce you to the COCONet Graduate Fellows, hear Michael Freilich's thoughts on the national strategy for civil Earth observations and NASA's decadal survey. Bob Smith has kindly agreed to provide a retrospective on the origins of UNAVCO as we prepare to celebrate UNAVCO's 30th anniversary in 2014. And I will bring you current on some events from 2013 - both its fine successes and some more harrowing experiences such as floods and other dangers.
The board has asked me to allow some time for community comments, with an individual limit of 2 minutes.

This came from Tim Dixon, Geoff Blewitt, and Giovanni Sella. Note that the Geodesy Section Award went to UNAVCO Board Member Rowena Lohman! Congratulations to Rowena....
I will send out a finalized agenda closer to the time of the meeting. I look forward to seeing you in San Francisco!
