Water Resources Specialty Group (WRSG) Chairís Message



The 2010 annual AAG meeting in Washington D.C. is fast approaching. Our Water Resources Specialty Group (WRSG) has organized and sponsored 24 sessions with a range of attractive topics. I strongly recommend attending these sessions to guarantee optimal benefit from your participation in the AAG annual meeting, and to support our distinguished group.


Within the AAG 2010 meeting, the WRSG will also organize two main events: The Distinguished Career Award Ceremony, and a Business Meeting. We will have the Ceremony right before our Business Meeting on Friday, April 16, at 8 p.m. in Marriott Wardman Park Hotel, Washington, D.C.  Within the WRSG Business Meeting, we will discuss WRSG matters, and recognize our student paper competition awards and travel grants. Your participation in the meeting is highly appreciated, so please come to our award ceremony and meeting to see old and new friends, and to have a good time afterwards at a nearby pub. 


Our WRSG Distinguished Career Award in Water Resources goes to Dr. Gerald E. Galloway, an outstanding geographer and co-founding member of our WRSG. Dr. Galloway has made many long-lasting important contributions to advancing water resources science, planning, and policy during his distinguished career.  He served in many capacities, including as a civil engineer, public administrator, soldier, educator, and geographer. Congratulations, Dr. Galloway, as fellow members of the WRSG, we are so proud of your leadership and outstanding services in enhancing water resources management and sustainability on national and international stages.


I look forward to seeing all of you all at the AAG meeting Washington D.C. soon.
