First Paragraph

I am honored to be elected as the first President of The Oceanography Society, and I extend congratulations on behalf of the entire Society to the newly elected President-Elect, Arnold Gordon, and to the members of the first Council of the Society: Penny Chisholm, Curt Collins, Cindy Lee, Tom Rossby, Connie Sancetta and Stan Wilson. Thanks are due to this group who have committed to working with the Society in its formative years, and to those who agreed to be on the ballot but who did not win. We are all looking forward to working with the new Council. This was the Society’s first election; we had more than 50% of our members vote, which is an excellent turnout. The League of Women Voters counted the ballots, ensuring that there was no conflict of interest involved.
