PRESIDENT’S LETTER - FEBRUARY 2024
Hello and welcome to 2024, ready or not! Thank you all for your support as I take over as the WGA President for 2024, especially considering I’m an engineer. I really hope to build on some great highlights from 2023, most notably our 80th Anniversary, which was celebrated on a picture perfect day on David Street. The new board has aspirations of a putting together another field conference this summer and continuing our annual picnic, golf tournament, and monthly luncheons. Please let us know if you have any field trip or other ideas for activities this year.
I’m excited to announce that Mark Milliken will continue serve as Treasurer, and we have some new (and experienced) faces joining the board this year. Nicole Coleman will be re-joining the board to serve as 1st Vice-President, and new to the board will be Josh Stone taking over as 2nd Vice President and Dawn Anderson taking over as Editor, who is new to the WGA organization.
The board recently voted to subsidize Geology student lunches, we see this as another great way to encourage student participation. Student lunches will be $10. Please let Maureen know if you would like to donate $ to the student fund to help offset these costs.
I hope to see and hear from everyone at the upcoming lunch presentations and have a great start to 2024!
Happy New Year,
Ben Grau, WGA President, 2024
