December 2023 Desk of the Director – Holiday Edition

Dear Sea Grant Colleagues, 

I hope that your transition towards winter has been excellent so far and that things will slow down just a bit for you as we head towards the Holiday Season. I would like to take this opportunity to celebrate the addition of so many new staff across the Sea Grant network – Welcome! –  and to thank each and every one of you for your tireless efforts on behalf of Sea Grant! You all are the essential ‘magic’ that makes the National Sea Grant College Program the impactful program that it is! 

To close this final letter of 2023, I want to again share the NSGO Holiday Card with you, and to send each of you my warmest regards.  On behalf of all of us in the National Sea Grant Office, I wish you all a peaceful and joyful Holiday Season.

Warm regards,
