Cooperative child care at the AGU Spring Meeting



A number of AGU members have expressed a desire for child care arrangements at meetings. The Education and Human Resources Committee has researched various possibilities to find one that would be effective, reliable, and inexpensive. We have found three alternatives of varying desirability: To hire a convention child care service. The services we have found so far charge over $20,000 for a 5-day meeting and are too expensive to be practical.
