Stay Tuned!
We know how many different things are going on at the GSA Annual Meeting, and it's hard to keep up with all of them. We have a video of George Davis' Presidential Address forthcoming, as well as the President's Medal Lecture by Bill McKibben.

Heard it on the Radio
While in Charlotte for the meeting, GSA members Rob Young, Michael Mann, David Szymanski, and Dawn Sumner were featured on Charlotte Talks, a local NPR affiliate morning radio show. These interviews are now available online and as podcasts:
• Rob Young on Rising Sea Levels (1 Nov.)

Lost & Found
Every year, GSA takes home things that aren't ours. If you misplaced something while at the meeting, please check with us! Just send an e-mail to William Cox, , with a description of what you lost, and if we have it, he'll get it back to you.

Continuing Education Units (CEUs)
GSA offers continuing education credit for technical sessions, short courses, and field trip attendance. Ten contact hours are required for one CEU, so one day (8 hours) of technical sessions = 0.8 CEUs. For a credit certificate, please contact Beth Engle, , for a special evaluation form (required). Once she receives your completed form, she will send the CEU certificate.
