GSA Town Hall Nov. 11 1-3pm ET

Dear GSA members,

Thank you for participating both in-person and virtually at our highly successful Indianapolis meeting! It is now with great pleasure that I invite you to attend our Virtual Town Hall on November 11, 2021, from 1:00pm ET to 3:00pm ET. (Please see this meeting’s **Zoom invitation** below.)

As we move into 2022 there are several topics of organizational evolution that we can best address by providing opportunities for deeper, more sustained membership input that can help guide a first-ever Strategic Plan for the GSA.

One of these topics is the focus of an ad hoc advisory committee to the Board, the Climate Emergency and Technology (CLEAT) committee (formerly the Carbon Footprint and Technology Committee), co-chaired by Christina Gerhardt and Sabine von Mering. Please see the CLEAT committee’s report. This report originated in a members’ petition during 2020. The CLEAT committee has offered a very broad range of possible options which were discussed with the Board during our Indianapolis conference; and the Board would now like the membership to read the report in advance of the Virtual Town Hall and to think about the committee’s recommendations. There are several ways in which we can build a climate protective organization, hopefully as part of the GSA's future Strategic Plan; and we are of course not the only academic association to be working on these issues, awareness of which has been heightened by the COVID-19 crisis.

The first hour of the Virtual Town Hall will be dedicated to the matters raised by the CLEAT committee report; and the second hour will be open topic.

Please also note that we’ll send out a call very soon for your (self-)nominations for a wide variety of service on GSA committees!

Kind regards,

Janet Ward, GSA President, and members of the GSA Executive Council and Executive Board
