It has been a great honor to serve as president and, for 2 years before that, as president-elect of AGU. I was drawn to AGU more than 30 years ago as a graduate student because it was an exciting and supportive organization of scientists working together to solve big problems to make the world a better place. My first AGU Fall Meeting left an indelible impression, reinforced every year since: a weeklong celebration of science—sharing, learning, and discovering—amid a sea of exuberant participants from around the globe. In AGU I found a community that nurtured my professional development and provided me with exceptional opportunities for career advancement. So when I was asked to run for president, it was an easy decision. I welcomed the chance to give back to the organization that had contributed so much to my growth as a scientist.
