FROM THE PRESIDENT
In a few short months, many of us will gather in San Diego for the 2020 Ocean Sciences Meeting. During this week-long event, we’ll celebrate TOS Honors recipients, including newly established medals. We will also provide several opportunities for members to engage with TOS Council members about any aspect of our Society including a new process that we call “TOS Strategy 2030”. Read more.
TOS STRATEGY 2030
We would like to engage all of you in the evolution of TOS—TOS Strategy 2030. One of the best qualities of TOS is the ability for members to suggest ideas for Council consideration, and the healthy volunteer spirit of TOS members helping with TOS initiatives. This is your opportunity to guide the future of our Society, and we welcome your ideas! Read more.
