GSW Presidential address & Business meeting (7 Dec @ 8 PM, AGU, 2000 Florida Av)

This year, unlike many previous years, we will be having our Presidential address & Business meeting at AGU Headquarters (2000 Florida Av, DC), and concurrently on Zoom. Our current president, Dr. Lawrence D. Meinert, will talk on ‘Exploration for Skarn Deposits – If Sherlock Holmes had been a Geologist’., Questions will not be entertained after Dr. Meinert’s talk, and the meeting will briefly adjourn. The annual business meeting of GSW members will then commence, with reports on our financial health and from other committees, and presentation of our annual awards. Then we will vote on the slate of officers (see below) for next year. When you come to AGU for the meetings (don’t go to the Cosmos Club!) please bring along your forehead for a temperature test, and also bring a record of your Covid-19 vaccinations. AGU will provide some snacks and drinks to tide us over. The doors to AGU Headquarters will open by 7 PM so that we can socialize before the meeting. Some previous GSW presidents will be taking Larry to dinner at the Cosmos Club before his Presidential address. Members will shortly receive the invitation for the meetings, and the Zoom link. Non-members are welcome to attend the Presidential address. If you don’t have the Zoom link, please contact Mike Ackerson for the details.
