We invite TOS members to submit self-nominations for Vice-Chair, Early Career Representative, or Student Representative for the 2024 Ocean Sciences Meeting Planning Committee by June 15, 2022:
All TOS Representatives are expected to:

- Attend two planning committee meetings (either in-person or virtually). The first will likely take place in June 2023, and the other will take place in October 2023.
- Assist with reviewing and merging sessions and communicating with session chairs as needed; work with other committee members and staff to create the schedule of oral and poster presentations
- Collaborate with other relevant committee members from AGU and ASLO to review past Ocean Sciences Meeting activities and determine activities for OSM 2024. Create plans, invite speakers, coordinate with conference staff on logistical needs as necessary.
- Attend the 2024 Ocean Sciences Meeting, and host, moderate, or monitor activities as assigned.
Travel expenses for participating in in-person planning meetings as well as attendance at the 2024 Ocean Sciences Meeting, will be supported by the Ocean Sciences Meeting general budget.
