ExtrACTION and Environment TIG

It’s Been Another Full Year and We Still Miss You

The ExtrACTION Team
Anna Willow, Elisabeth Moolinear, Jeanne Simonelli

One of the hardest decisions made by the SfAA Executive Board is what to do about already scheduled annual meetings.  Three years ago, our bags were packed, bound for Albuquerque, when the meeting was cancelled. It was a good call, as the State of New Mexico closed down the following week.  But it was too late to move to a virtual platform.  Two years  ago, the decision was made enough in advance that a vibrant virtual meeting could be planned. It was pretty successful. Last year, March 2022, brought us the first hybrid meeting and the ExtrACTION and Environment TIG was part of the group meeting in Salt Lake City or from your home. 

We would love to see as many of you in person this year in Cincinnati.  Cincinnati is an interesting city, near the Kentucky border. Join us for what could be bright sun and blue skies, snowstorms or tornados.  The venue is an art deco hotel with lovely rooms.  Make your reservations soon.

We invite you to especially participate in a joint session sponsored by ExtrACTION, Risk and Disaster and PESO.  Our interests and activities often overlap, and this is a chance to join us.
