The Oceanography Society (TOS) is creating a strategic plan that will guide the Society through 2030 and invites you to contribute your ideas by responding to the questions in the survey below. In considering your responses, it may be helpful to reflect on the mission of The Oceanography Society which is
 
- to advance oceanographic research, technology, and education, and
- to disseminate knowledge of oceanography and its application through research and education
 
To carry out this mission, TOS promotes the broad understanding of oceanography, facilitates consensus building across all the disciplines of the field, and informs the public about ocean research, innovative technology, and educational opportunities throughout the spectrum of oceanographic inquiry.
 
The TOS leadership has planned several events during the 2020 Ocean Sciences Meeting to discuss ideas and suggestions with TOS members. To help inform our discussions, we would appreciate receiving your survey response ideally by Tuesday, February 18, 2020. For those of you attending the Ocean Sciences Meeting, please stop by the TOS exhibit (#109) to receive a voucher redeemable for food and beverages at the concession in the San Diego Convention Center. This voucher can be used between 11:30 and 2:30 from Tuesday, 2/18 - Thursday, 2/20/20.
