the opportunity to participate in the NGSP for NOAA, would it be possible
for you to forward the imbedded message to the SAB members as well as
working group members? Unfortunately, there may be some duplication of
notification, but in the attempt notify all constituents, resending to your
distribution list would alleviate any gaps. Thanks for your help.

Dear NOAA Stakeholder:

Since assuming the position of NOAA Administrator, I have had the privilege
of leading an agency of talented and dedicated employees committed to our
overarching goals of science, services, and stewardship, and to interact
with hundreds of NOAA's constituents who are dedicated to working with us to
improve our nation's environment and economy. As I wrote earlier this year,
"Now is the time.for NOAA to spur the creation of new jobs and industries,
revive our fisheries and the economies and communities they support, improve
weather forecasting and disaster warnings, provide credible information
about climate change and ocean acidification to Americans, and protect and
restore our coastal waters and ecosystems."

These are lofty goals, but President Obama has challenged all of us to aim

input, and we are now prepared to build upon this work as we finalize the

Because you are an important NOAA stakeholder, I now seek your participation
in our NGSP Stakeholder Forum. This meeting builds upon a series of regional
roundtables and will help us create a plan that will guide the agency into
the future. Please join me on December 2, 2009, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
at the George Washington University Marvin Center (Cafritz Conference
Center-3rd floor), Washington, D.C.; Foggy Bottom Station on the Blue and
Orange Lines. Details on the NGSP, registration, and an agenda are available
at [7] Please register for the forum by November 20, 2009, if
you or a representative of your organization can attend.

Thank you for your past support of NOAA. I look forward to seeing you on
December 2.
