Call for VEXAG Steering Committee Members

VEXAG (NASA’s Venus Exploration Analysis Group) is seeking four new volunteers for the VEXAG Steering Committee to replace Members at Large, who have successfully completed their service to the Venus community. New Steering Committee members will start in January and July 2021 for terms that will run for three years.

Nominations and self-nominations are welcome, and will need a short statement of interest and vision for Venus, and a CV. Please submit these to Darby Dyar and Noam Izenberg, VEXAG Chair and Deputy Chair, at mdyar@mtholyoke.eduNoam.Izenberg@jhuapl.edu; no later than Friday, December 4, 2020.

In addition to sponsoring regular and topical meetings, VEXAG activities for the next three years are expected to focus on supporting the 2023-2032 Planetary Decadal Survey and fostering the next generation of Venus researchers. Volunteers for VEXAG’s Early Career Venus Scholars Focus Group are particularly welcome.

VEXAG (http://www.lpi.usra.edu/vexag/) is a community-based forum established in July 2005 to assess scientific priorities and strategies for NASA’s exploration of Venus.
