AGU donors and supporting members play role at Fall Meeting



More than 1800 of AGU's top donors attended the 2011 Fall Meeting, and many of them sought refuge in the newly improved donor lounges. To quietly recognize supporting members, the lounges offered quiet space to relax between sessions, enjoy refreshments, meet with other donors, or work. Supporting members and AGU donors of all levels played a bigger role than ever at the Fall Meeting. Through the generous support of longtime members and AGU supporters Bruce Tsurutani and Olga Verkhoglyadova, the Space Weather and Nonlinear Waves and Processes Prize was announced at the meeting and will be awarded for the first time at the 2013 Fall Meeting.
