New officers assume leadership


  • Anonymous


The 2006–2008 AGU officers assumed their leadership roles on 1 July. To prepare for their roles, incoming Council members participated in a Leadership Conference on 20–21 May in Annapolis, Md., just prior to the Joint Assembly in Baltimore, Md.

This year's conference focused on the responsibilities of Council members as directors of a not-for-profit corporation, and how these responsibilities shape the direction of AGU policy, programs, and activities. Participants had an opportunity to obtain information and context to help them meet their responsibilities as leaders of AGU, to build common understandings with other Council members and Focus Group and committee chairs, and to contemplate the future directions of the Union and its needs.
