Hello SRAI Southern Section. I hope everyone is adjusting to our new norm. Due to our current situation, we were unable to have our meeting in Savannah, GA, and therefore the transition of leadership was done via Zoom, June 16, 2020. I know we were all looking forward to the meeting, and I want to thank our Immediate Past President, Jennifer Easley (now Dr. Easley, Congratulations!) and her executive committee for all of their effort in putting together what would have been an outstanding meeting.
Please join me in welcoming your 2020-2021 SRAI Southern Section Leadership:
||Karen Bone, President-Elect, Florida Atlantic University Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute
||Jennifer Easley, Immediate Past President, Mississippi State University
||Kimberly Read, Secretary, University of South Florida
||Ana Feliciano, Treasurer, University of Puerto Rico
Next year we will partner with the Northeast Section in Louisville, KY, March 14-17 (Save the date). Debbie Pettitt, President, Northeast Section, and I are planning what we believe will be a great meeting. Although we cannot make up for the meeting that did not happen in Savannah, GA, we will do our best with the help of our executive committee and committee volunteers to make this one of the best welcome back meeting possible.
Until we all meet again (and hopefully not via Zoom), let us lookout for each other, with distance!
