AEG HEADLINES


Cowabunga! AEG Foundation nears $1 million
AEG
The AEG Foundation provides scholarships and grants to support research and the Jahns lecturers, and it is nearing a milestone. The countdown to $1 million in invested assets is getting close. On May 20, the amount stood at $974,394. This is significant, as the balance in June of 2004, only stood at $75,000. Your donations over the next few months can push the AEG Foundation's invested assets over the $1 million level by the 2013 AEG Annual Meeting in September. To help us reach our goal, please donate now!

How do you conduct public outreach?
AEG
Many of you have contributed to our call for comments over the last few months, so we've got to think we're just seeing the tip of the iceberg. There must be even more people out there conducting acts of advocacy in many different ways. We want to hear about all of them and have your ideas inspire others to reach out as well. Big or small, let us know how you have conducted public outreach, and we'll work with you to recognize your good work and pass those ideas on to others via the AEG NEWS.
