ALEXANDRIA, Va. — The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) is pleased to launch its new electronic newsletter, AGI Connections, covering geoscience community news with an emphasis on AGI and its federation of Member Societies.

Focusing on the impact of effective geoscience products, programs, and services that are making a difference, AGI Connections will appear quarterly in Spring, Summer, and Fall (supplemented by the AGI Annual Report in Winter).
"There is a lot going on during these pivotal times for the geosciences, and our federation needs to know about the 'greater good' works of AGI and its partners," said AGI Executive Director Jonathan Arthur on releasing the e-newsletter. "AGI Connections is designed to do just that by reporting on impactful efforts within the geoscience federation."
The debut issue covers topics including AGI's new executive director, the higher education community's use of the report Vision and Change in the Geosciences: The Future of Undergraduate Geoscience Education, K-12 education workshops including "Virtual Contexts for Environmental Exploration," expansion of GeoRef's Ocean Drilling Bibliographic Database, the work of AGI Congressional Geoscience Fellows, and new products and services from AGI.
Just as important, the e-newsletter includes coverage of geoscience community events such as upcoming AGI Member Society conferences and meetings.
AGI Connections is free and available to anyone. To subscribe or view the e-newsletter archive, please visit https://www.americangeosciences.org/agiconnections. To share your events, contact AGI Communications' Geoff Camphire at gac@americangeosciences.org.
