Dear UNAVCO Community,

I would like to express my highest appreciation to Dr. Meghan Miller for her selfless work on behalf of UNAVCO and the geodetic community as President of UNAVCO.  Meghan’s scientific contributions to geodesy, commitment to education and diversity, and fostering of the next generation has fueled the growth of the geodetic community since she took the helm of UNAVCO in 2008.  Her leadership, without ego, has helped to transform the the geodetic community into a vibrant, growing organization.

Meghan has managed UNAVCO through challenging funding environments making sure that it remains effective and responsive to the community needs.  She successfully led proposals to NSF to fund the GAGE Facility and the recent NEGO proposal resulting in the GAGE2 Facility.  These proposals required enormous combined community efforts to form a common vision around the operation, data management and education related to geodetic observations.

In addition, Meghan led UNAVCO to adopt a strong open data policy to further enable a broader user base of geodetic observations. A lasting legacy that Meghan will leave at UNAVCO is her work with members of the geodetic community over her tenure as President to ensure that the direction and governance of UNAVCO comes from the geodetic community it serves.

Please join me and the board in thanking Meghan for her service to UNAVCO and the geodetic community.


Lucy Flesch, Chair UNAVCO Board of Directors
