ALEXANDRIA, Va. — You are invited to join the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the American Geosciences Institute (AGI) through our "75 for 75" social media campaign taking place over the next few months.

This year, AGI marks three-quarters of a century since the first meeting of our Board of Directors in 1948. To celebrate, we will post one social media message about a significant event in AGI history across the next 75 business days, leading up to our 75th anniversary date on November 15, 2023.

Recall milestones of the geoscience community, such as the publication of the first issue of Geotimes and EARTH magazine, the establishment of GeoRef, the Glossary of Geology, and the launch of Earth Science Week. Like and share your favorites with friends and colleagues. Through your comments, you can let us know of recommended topics for the campaign.

If you are a member of an AGI member society, a member of AGI's wider federation, or simply a member of the broader geoscience community, we hope you will join us in celebrating our shared history. We look forward to continuing this tradition of partnership and accomplishment in the years to come!

Watch for "75 for 75" posts on Facebook, Twitter (X), LinkedIn, and Instagram in the coming weeks and months. To follow AGI on social media, visit AGI online today.
