We invite SIPS members and colleagues to attend three special SIPS lunch events at the AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco. There are several great opportunities to meet other SIPS members. You also get a nice lunch without having to wait in any long lines or go too far from the conference.
On Tuesday, December 15 there is a luncheon at Jillian’s (Metreon, 175 4th St, right across from Moscone) from 12:30 to 1:30 pm. It will be an opportunity to talk about SIPS and SIPS objectives and meet SIPS members. This is a great option for lunch and conversation. Avoid the long lunch lines and have a nice lunch at a reasonable price at a convenient location. Tickets required: $10 for members and free for students, SIPS leadership, and SIPS liaisons.
On Thursday, December 17 there is a “Science Policy: Moscone West Wing” panel event with lunch in Moscone North (not Moscone West but very close). Congressional staff members and other panelists will talk about communicating with Congress and policymakers in general. SIPS members are particularly encouraged to attend. No RSVP required.
Join SIPS members for a group discussion about SIPS events and programs plus the future direction of SIPS. There will also be an opportunity to meet some policymakers. No RSVP required.
You can RSVP and reserve necessary tickets for the Tuesday event using AGU’s event scheduling tool. Search under SIPS for our events.

The SIPS focus group is looking for more volunteers to serve as liaisons to other sections and focus groups of AGU. We would like at least one liaison for each section not represented in the list above and we are looking for a liaison whose primary or secondary affiliation is with that section. The liaison would be asked to take responsibility for some or all of the following objectives:
If you would like to volunteer to be a liaison, you can sign up through this online form. If you would like to suggest a colleague who could be a liaison for your section, you can do so through the same online form.
