Are you wondering what to give GSA on such a momentous birthday?
GSA and the GSA Foundation are asking members and friends to GIVE 125!
You can give what makes the most sense for you — dollars, time, possessions, or yourself. Our goal is for all GSA members to contribute in increments of 125 to show support for GSA during this anniversary year. Contributions can be made by individuals or groups to meet the 125 goal. For example, members could pool their talents and tackle a project to get it to the 125 level as a group.
At the 2013 GSA Annual Meeting & Exposition in Denver, all participants will be recognized with a special memento.
GSA’s birthday gifts so far …
Donate Time —
Raise awareness of the geosciences by talking to K–12 students, social groups (e.g., Boy/Girl Scouts, Rotary clubs, etc.), legislators, congressional representatives, or members of the public, with the goal of connecting with 125 individuals.
- I will organize a badge workshop for Junior Girl Scouts in my local unit.
- I am working to bring the dispersed group of karst geoscientists together within GSA in a new Karst Geosciences Division so that we can better serve the unique and interdisciplinary nature of karst studies through outreach, activity and research coordination, student support, and education. To bring the GSA Karst Geosciences Division into being, I will have to connect with and create connections between more than 125 GSA members plus members of several GSA divisions and GSA administration and staff. By giving a unified voice to karst geoscientists within GSA, we will be able to inform the larger GSA community regarding the delicate and complex nature of karst. My goal is for the new division to have its first meeting at GSA 2013 in Denver.
