Lawrence MeinertLawrence Meinert was the 2010–2011 GSA-USGS Congressional Science Fellow and is currently Editor-in-Chief of Economic Geology, Affiliate Faculty at the Colorado School of Mines, and President of Meinert Consulting.

How would you describe your experience as a Congressional Science Fellow?

In a word, transformative. The Congressional Science Fellowship opened new vistas and capabilities that I would never have envisioned, nor thought was something I could do. It is without a doubt the most meaningful thing I have done in my professional career.

What inspired you to work in both politics and geology?

It was an opportunity born of being in the right place at the right time. I had relocated to Washington, D.C., because my wife was called to join the Obama administration, and although I knew about the Congressional Science Fellowship program, I never imagined it as something I could or would do. The opportunity to combine my scientific expertise with the political arena was transformative. It led to a new career with the U.S. Geological Survey in which my newfound skills were essential. Although I had touched many lives during my 30-year career as a geology professor, in the political realm I had even more influence, and I owe it all to GSA’s support of the Congressional Science Fellowship program.

What are you most proud of from your time as a Congressional Science Fellow?

Being part of the incredible network of present, former, and future Fellows. We collectively are helping to make America a better country. My small part was in helping to develop an awareness of the importance of mineral resources in general and critical minerals, such as rare earth elements, in particular. This led directly to presidential and secretarial orders that reshaped national policy.

Why should people support programs like the GSA’s policy work?

The stated purpose of the Congressional Science Fellowship program is to inculcate scientific awareness and reasoning into the congressional process. But it works both ways. Congressional Fellows are transformed in their understanding of how the legislative process works, and it makes us better people as well as more effective scientists. In terms of “bang for the buck,” this may be the best of all uses of GSA Foundation funding.

What would you like to say to other people who give of their time and resources to GSA?

First, thank you. And second, by participating in GSA activities you not only are making the world a better place but you just might find, as I did, that you will grow to be a better person.

 

Ryan Haupt and Laura Szymanski in Wahihngton, D.C.Ryan Haupt is a paleontologist and podcaster currently working on his Ph.D. at the University of Wyoming, and he served as the 2019–2020 GSA Science Policy Fellow.

What was/is your role with the GSA Policy Office? And how would you describe your experience?

I served as GSA’s Science Policy Fellow from September 2019 to August 2020. The role of the Science Policy Fellow is to work with the Director for Geoscience Policy to track geoscience-related legislation in Congress by attending hearings and Hill briefings, keep GSA members informed about policy activities, help run the Geoscience Congressional Visits Days (which I participated in myself a few years back), work with GSA’s Geology and Public Policy Committee, and just generally help bridge the gap between policymakers and GSA’s members. Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic I feel like I had two very different six-month fellowships. For the first six months, I was on the Hill a few times a week, in and out of meetings, learning my way around the tunnels underneath all the congressional buildings, and just having a blast. As you can probably guess from the long list of responsibilities it was a lot of work, but I was enjoying the pace and getting to meet so many smart and accomplished people.

Then we started hearing rumblings about a virus and the world turned upside down. One of the first major impacts on my life thanks to the pandemic was when the NE/SE GSA Section Meeting was cancelled, which was absolutely the right call, but also set the tone for just how different the rest of my fellowship would be. The rest of the fellowship was spent adjusting to the digital life we’ve all had to come to terms with. We still had a lot of the same meetings, but many of our science policy goals for the year were derailed by Congress dealing with the pandemic. Every major event was rescheduled for September, optimistic in hindsight, and after my term as fellow would be over anyway. I left the office in March and didn’t return until August to turn in my badge and laptop and sanitize my office for the next fellow. I was sad my fellowship ended during such strange times, but I’m glad to have accomplished what I could.

What inspired you to work in both politics and geology?

I would say the two interests were sparked independently of one another and then grew together, like when stalactites and stalagmites connect and form a single column. In college, I ended up double majoring in biology and geology because I wanted to go into paleontology, but a specific paleo degree didn’t exist. I loved studying both, but really felt at home with the other geology students. I felt like I’d found my people. Like many others, college is also when I became a more politically aware and engaged person, but my true passion for the role of policy came from binging the—in hindsight somewhat fantastical—West Wing. I loved watching smart and competent people work together to accomplish big things in the service of other people. While I was in grad school, my girlfriend (now wife) got a job with the Smithsonian and moved to D.C., which was when I really started looking for opportunities in the world of science policy. My first opportunity was participating in a Geoscience Congressional Visits Day. After my day on the Hill meeting with legislators and their staff I was hooked, and I’ve been looking for opportunities to get and stay involved in science policy and the work GSA does in that space ever since.

What are you most proud of from your time with the GSA Policy Office?

I don’t have a single moment I’m most proud of while I was with the GSA Policy Office, but there are a few recurrent themes that I feel really good about. My favorite days were the days I got to spend on the Hill with GSA members interfacing with their legislators’ offices and staff. Helping geoscientists engage in productive conversations with policymakers was always a treat, and I felt like one of my strengths in my role as a fellow was serving as a liaison between those two groups in the moment. Early in the fellowship when I felt like I’d been tossed in the deep end a little, I’d had a long but productive day running around the Hill. As I was leaving for the day to head home, I turned and saw the sun setting behind the Capitol dome and just thought to myself, “Yeah, this does not suck.”

Why should people support programs like the GSA Policy Office?

I think there isn’t enough awareness around how much GSA does when it comes to science policy. I think our society could benefit greatly from more of our members taking an active interest in the science policy work being done on their behalf in D.C. Even making the occasional phone call to their specific congress people’s offices about the geoscience (and other) issues that matter to them can have a huge impact over time. I feel like geologists in particular can appreciate the large effects that a small but repeated process can have, given enough time.

What would you like to say to other people who donate their time and resources to GSA?

Thank you! Learning about and working on science policy for GSA was a great privilege for me and something I did not take lightly. The work certainly isn’t thankless, but it does largely fly under the radar. I want to offer kudos and make sure that those who donate their time and resources get the credit and appreciation they deserve for working to support our field and our community.

Mark LittleMark Little was the 2009–2010 GSA-USGS Congressional Science Fellow, former GSA Councilor, and is currently Executive Director of CREATE, a global initiative building shared prosperity through applied interventions, research, and policy.

How would you describe your experience as a Congressional Science Fellow?

I had a phenomenal, formative experience as a Congressional Science Fellow, from the careful interview process conducted by GSA members with whom I am still connected, to the exceptional year of work and professional development curated by the American Association for the Advancement of Science, to the opportunities to further engage GSA post-fellowship.

What inspired you to work in both politics and geology?

I am committed to people and to the planet. I think that the lines between different disciplines are useful and important, but for me they all wash together. I seek opportunities to use my understanding of the Earth for the benefit of people and vice versa.

What are you most proud of from your time as a Congressional Science Fellow?

I worked on the house foreign affairs committee during my fellowship year, which allowed me to contribute to policy at the intersection of human development and the earth sciences.  One exceptional opportunity was being part of an international effort to reduce the human costs of illicit mining.

Why should people support programs like the Congressional Science Fellow?

I believe that people should support organizations that are doing the work they care about. The Congressional Science Fellow program, and GSA’s broader public policy efforts, are well run, have tremendous impact on individuals such as myself, and inform policy that impacts the entire planet. So, if you care about any of that, GSA will put your dollars to work!

What would you like to say to other people who give of their time and resources to GSA?

I am personally indebted to GSA for providing a life-changing professional opportunity. I also feel that I have been able to do more and better work because of the opportunities GSA has provided. So, on a very personal level, I am grateful to those who give to GSA.

 

 

Kenneth B. Taylor pastKenneth Taylor was the 1991–1992 GSA-USGS Congressional Science Fellow and is State Geologist of North Carolina, N.C. Geological Survey, Division of Energy, Mineral, and Land Resources, N.C. Department of Environmental Quality.

How would you describe your experience as a Congressional Science Fellow?

When I interviewed, Dr. Fisher at the University of Texas was one of the interviewers. Since the five previous GSA Congressional Science Fellows had moved from being on the staff of a congressional committee or on the staff of an individual Member of Congress, Dr. Fisher asked where I was planning to embed in the Congress. I indicated that I wanted to learn the legislative process and to focus on the hazards all Americans face from the natural environment—drought, landslides, earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, flooding, etc.

I interviewed in several offices including that of Rep. Stokes, a member of the House Appropriations Committee, and Senator Harry Reid, a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee. I was interviewed by Ray Martinez, Senator Reid’s chief of staff. Ray had run Senator Reid’s first campaign—for student body president in high school! After talking with me for a few minutes, Ray excused himself and left me in his office alone. Less than three minutes later, the door opened and Ray introduced me to Senator Reid.

What inspired you to work in both politics and geology?

My full name is Kenneth Belk Taylor: Kenneth is from my mother’s younger brother’s name—Joseph Kenneth Ingram—and Belk is from my mother’s older brother—Thomas Belk Ingram. Uncle Joe was a Republican and Uncle T. Belk was a Democrat. They loved each other and argued and always discussed politics. When Uncle Joe was old enough to vote in South Carolina, he went to the county seat of Chesterfield. He asked for a voter registration card. He wanted a Republican Party voter registration card. This was in the early forties, when there were no persons registered with that party in that part of South Carolina. Joe insisted that he be registered and he was, with the word REPUBLICAN written in red pencil across his card. I saw it many years later, framed in his brokerage office.

I was a rock hound from the sixth grade onward. I always knew I wanted to be a geologist.

What are you most proud of from your time as a Congressional Science Fellow?

Senator Reid hated to wear glasses in the Senate Chamber. I watched his speeches from his office. I noticed that he had a cadence in speaking, so I proposed to Ray that we increase the font size of the text he was reading and let him use his natural cadence of speaking. For example, “Fellow Senators, I come to you today, [flip page] to talk with you about, [flip page] women’s health.”

I stayed in Senator Reid’s office after the fellowship ended and was picked up by the U.S. Geological Survey to help put on an international conference on Arctic contamination in Anchorage, Alaska. Our first daughter was born in Arlington, Virginia, and we moved to North Carolina a few months later, where I was employed by the State of North Carolina. That was 27 years ago.

Why should people support programs like the Congressional Science Fellow?

As a Congressional Science Fellow, my job was to be an unbiased, technical explainer of complex issues in an easy-to-understand and fully accurate way. There was NO spin, or feeding the Senator information that ran counter to years of his legislative work. To me that is what a scientist is supposed to do: Give the facts and explain the details in language everyone can understand. That is why people should support the Congressional Science Fellow program.

What would you like to say to other people who give of their time and resources to GSA?

I salute ALL who help with their time and resources to the Geological Society of America. I will turn 64 this year. I joined GSA in 1977, around 44 years ago, when I was 20. I organized and ran the student assistants’ support at the 1989 GSA Annual Meeting in Saint Louis. I have also helped with a few of the GSA Southeastern Section Meetings. GSA has been a part of my life for decades. One of my colleagues from the American Association of State Geologists and one of my professors at the University of South Carolina, Dr. Robert D. Hatcher Jr. supported my elevation to GSA Fellow in 2018. GSA made these experiences possible.

Pronouns: she/her/hers

How would you describe your experience as a Congressional Science Fellow?

In a word: transformational. My experience as a Congressional Science Fellow transformed my understanding of what I could do, and what impact I could have, with my Ph.D. in earth sciences. The experience also transformed my career path, leading to opportunities nationally and around the world as a “boundary spanner,” connecting the worlds of science, policy, and diplomacy to advance equity, inclusion, sustainability, and peace.

What inspired you to work in both politics and geology?

For geology: I was first inspired by Professor Brian Skinner of Yale. From his introductory courses to advanced courses in metallurgy, his approach to geology always connected earth science to the arts, history, politics, and impacts on culture and society. Years later, during field work in Antarctica, my interest in politics was sparked by meeting with a delegation from the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee who, I learned quickly, had the power to support or deny funding to all future polar science research. It was that eye-opening experience that led me to apply to the USGS-GSA Congressional Science Fellowship program and begin a fascinating, rewarding career at the intersection of science, policy, and diplomacy.

What are you most proud of from your time as a Congressional Science Fellow?

I am most proud of the way I was able to bring my scientific expertise to my policy advising role in Congress, while also having the humility to realize my Ph.D. knowledge was critical, but not at all sufficient. I quickly realized the importance of expanding my understanding of policy issues with knowledge from a diversity of social, economic, cultural, and community stakeholders before giving advice on policies that could affect hundreds of thousands, even tens of millions, of people in the U.S. and around the world. In learning to do that, I was able to develop new expertise in relationship-building, creating trusted coalitions, and advancing shared goals through evidence-informed policy—skills that continue to serve, and advance, my career.

Why should people support programs like the Congressional Science Fellow?

The majority of individuals working in Congress are smart, driven, innovative, and service-focused individuals with backgrounds in political science, government, economics, law, and business. Having a cohort of smart, driven, innovative, and service-focused STEM professionals serving in the halls of our government is critical in a world that is increasingly shaped by science and technology, from IT innovations to life-saving vaccines. The work of GSA to ensure those science voices also brings a diversity of backgrounds and experience to D.C., intentionally working to dismantle centuries of systemic discrimination in both science and policy, and also helps us build a more inclusive, equitable, and sustainable nation—and world—for future generations.

What would you like to say to other people who give of their time and resources to GSA?

GSA has been shaping and informing my career since my first annual GSA conference as a young graduate student. I remember being both intimidated and energized, attending a diversity of sessions ranging from isotope geochemistry to natural resource policy. GSA then supported my Congressional Science Fellowship and gave me my first platforms as a speaker, and leader, on science and policy to develop my voice and ideas. As my career progressed, that support and experience resulted in a call from the U.S. National Academies to join a committee devoted to advancing excellence in geoscience and diplomacy around the world, the U.S. National Committee for the International Union of Geological Sciences (USNC-GS). Fourteen years later, I Chair the National Academies’ Board on International Scientific Organizations and am active internationally on issues of science, policy, and diplomacy in the Arctic and around the world, focusing on inclusion and equity. GSA has given me—and countless others—the opportunity to pursue a diversity of impactful careers in academe, government, NGOs, and the private sector. I hope everyone will continue to give and support the work of such an incredible organization.

Connor DaceyDr. Connor Dacey is the current Science Policy Fellow and a recent graduate from the University of Delaware, where he received a Ph.D. in disaster science and management after finishing his dissertation entitled, “The Perceptions of Storm Spotters as Part of a Natural Hazards Integrated Warning System.”

 

What is your role with the GSA Policy Office? And How would you describe your experience?

I am currently the 2020–2021 Science Policy Fellow with the Geological Society of America. My experiences as the GSA Science Policy Fellow are much different from those fellows that came before me due to COVID-19. Nevertheless, I have still been able to fulfill many of the same roles and responsibilities. My weeks consist of attending virtual meetings as a member of numerous working groups, such as the Geopolicy and Climate Science Working Groups. I helped assist with the first virtual Geoscience Congressional Visits Days, and attended the first virtual GSA Annual Meeting. I attend numerous webinars and take notes on topics relating to geoscience legislation and Congress. I also contribute to the GSA Speaking of Geoscience Blog and help to keep GSA members updated on the latest legislation. Overall, it has been a fulfilling experience.

What inspired you to work in both politics and geology?

Well, actually, my background is in meteorology and disaster science and management, and not geology. That being said, there are numerous geological hazards such as earthquakes and landslides that are of huge interest to me. When studying these hazards, I learned about the importance of mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery policies in an effort to better protect both lives and property. These policies are often directly tied to geoscience legislation. This is when my interest in politics began to grow. I wanted to learn more about how politics influences disasters in the geoscience disciplines. As such, I applied to the GSA Science Policy Fellowship in the hopes of learning more about how scientists communicate with lawmakers, and ways to better bridge the gap between science and policy.

What are you most proud of from your time with the GSA Policy Office?

I am most proud of being able to work with such great colleagues here at GSA who have supported me in every possible way throughout my time as the GSA Science Policy Fellow, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. I am especially grateful for Kasey White who is GSA’s Director for Geoscience Policy. I cannot thank her enough for all her leadership, support, and guidance, as well as for giving me the opportunity to become the 2020–2021 GSA Science Policy Fellow.

Why should people support programs like the GSA Policy Office?

The GSA Policy Office has given me an opportunity to learn and grow in a field that I did not know much about before my fellowship experience. There may be many other scientists and early career professionals who want to become more involved in geopolicy, but are unsure about what they can do to become more engaged. The GSA Policy Office offers them these important and crucial opportunities to further their involvement and spur new interest. It is essential that others support programs like the GSA Policy Office.

What would you like to say to other people who donate their time and resources to GSA?

I would say thank you. The time and resources that others donate to GSA greatly help benefit early career professionals like myself who are eager to learn more about possible career options at the intersection of geoscience and public policy. The donation of your time and resources to GSA does not go unnoticed. I am extremely grateful for all the opportunities GSA has provided me, and I hope that others will continue to donate their time and resources to GSA in the future.

David Syzmanski at the CapitolLike many organizations, GSA has been affected in this past year. Now more than ever, our Greatest Needs Fund is vital to sustain the very programs that define GSA and allow the Society to respond to those areas most impacted by changing circumstances. GSA leadership allocates the funds to increase student travel grants or research grant awards, for more On To the Future diversity awards, or to help fund the Congressional and Science Policy Fellows. Since GSA’s policy work remains a vital force for our science and our future, it is a program area that could benefit significantly from the Greatest Needs Fund.

Our policy staff take on a number of important items such as membership in working groups like Geopolicy and Climate Science; Geoscience Congressional Visit Days; and informing GSA members on current geoscience legislation. The policy office helps the community on a regular basis, such as facilitating our members’ support of bills that have been recently signed into law. Over the next several weeks, we will be sharing stories from those who have been involved with GSA’s policy work as a part of our ongoing Community of Support series. We will post a new story every Thursday through the month of June. Bookmark this page and check back weekly.

Make an immediate impact today! Support the Greatest Needs Fund by clicking DONATE at the top right and help provide flexibility for GSA to strategically apply resources where they are critically needed.

David W. Szymanski, Ph.D., is Associate Professor of Geology at Bentley University and was the 2008–2009 GSA-USGS Congressional Science Fellow.

How would you describe your experience as a Congressional Science Fellow?

The Congressional Science Fellowship was life-changing. While I went into the fellowship aiming to use our science in “service to society,” learning the process and politics in decision-making first-hand was transformative. The cultural divide between scientists and policymakers is enormous. After my year on Capitol Hill, I knew I had to focus on science communication and science education for non-scientists in order to help the next generation of leaders address the wicked problems of sustainability. And that has been the core of my professional work ever since.

What inspired you to work in both politics and geology?

After completing my bachelor’s degree, I went on to graduate school for both geology and forensic science, applying the analytical skills of a chemist essential to both fields. I cut my teeth in science communication testifying as an expert witness in court—convincing lawyers, judges, and juries that geology had a lot to say about the chemical composition of glass as trace evidence. The challenge of using science for the public good revealed other connections between geoscience and society. I was inspired to “scale up” my work and try science communication on the front-end of the system and help make the laws.

What are you most proud of from your time as a Congressional Science Fellow?

What I am most proud of from my time on the Hill was my work supporting my “boss,” Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT). I worked a portfolio of energy, climate, and environmental issues for the senator, and made sure he was prepared to walk into any meeting with the best scientific understanding of an issue—which could have been anything from forest fire appropriations to the efficiency of reactions in developing biofuels. At the same time, I learned the real value of science in policymaking, which is wrapped up in the competing interests of economics and public opinion. So, I’m also proud of how that time paid off for my students to this day. I’m preparing them to make a difference, armed with the same understanding.

Why should people support programs like the Congressional Science Fellow?

Programs like the Congressional Science Fellowship make such a difference; the dividends are orders of magnitude greater than the investment. By sending scientists to the Hill, we not only effect a positive change in the perception of scientists by lawmakers, but we also enable scientists to teach the two-way street of science policy to their colleagues and next generation of leaders.

What would you like to say to other people who give of their time and resources to GSA?

It’s easy to see giving back to GSA as a contribution to the profession. But it is so much more than that. Giving is the opportunity to inspire. It’s the opportunity to change a life and change the process at the same time—and with an understanding of time and scale that only the earth sciences can provide. “Service to society” isn’t just part of our mission. It’s at the heart of our role as explorers, as educators, and as stewards of the Earth. Giving time and resources to GSA is the ultimate act of paying it forward.

 

The GSA Foundation Board of Trustees is a group of volunteer leaders, prominent and dedicated geologists, who govern the Foundation. We are fortunate that their multi-year terms, often renewed for a second consecutive span, provide a stable continuum to ensure transparent, cost-effective operations, open communication with the Society, and prudent fund management. We would like to introduce you to our two newest Trustees who joined the board in the last year.

Lydia Fox is Associate Professor of Geological & Environmental Sciences at University of the Pacific and also the Director of Undergraduate Research. A recipient of Pacific’s Distinguished Faculty Award, the Spanos Distinguished Teaching Award, Lydia is passionate about teaching and connecting undergraduates to research opportunities. Lydia received her B.S.E. in geological engineering from Princeton University and her Ph.D. in geological sciences from the University of California, Santa Barbara and initially worked as a field engineer for Schlumberger Well Services and then as a geologist for the U.S. Geological Survey in Menlo Park, before teaching at California State University, Northridge. While department chair at Pacific, Lydia facilitated the addition of a major in Environmental Sciences; she has been the Director of the interdisciplinary Environmental Studies program since 2004. Her research is in the area of Mesozoic granites and hydrothermal alteration. She remains deeply involved in her field: Lydia is an active member of the Council on Undergraduate Research, and she is currently the chair of the Field Camp Scholarship Committee for the National Association of Geoscience Teachers and serves on the Executive Committee of the Education Section of the American Geophysical Union.

photo of Farouk El BazFarouk El-Baz returns to the Foundation board, on which he previously served from 1999–2009. He is seasoned in fundraising efforts on behalf of GSA, since he also served on the Second Century committee in the mid-nineties, including as campaign co-chair for two years. Many of you are aware of two awards he established with GSAF: The El-Baz Desert Research Award recognizes an outstanding body of work by a young scientist in warm desert research, and the El-Baz Research Grant supports desert studies by students either in the senior year of their undergraduate studies, or at the master’s or Ph.D. level. Years before his deep involvement with GSA, Farouk received a B.S. in chemistry and geology from Ain Shams University in Egypt. His M.S. and Ph.D. degrees are from University of Missouri and MIT, and he went on to work in Egypt’s oil industry before becoming secretary of lunar landing site selection in the Apollo program. From the early 1970s and into the 1980s, he established and directed the Smithsonian Institution’s Center for Earth and Planetary Studies, and served as Science Advisor to the late President Anwar Sadat of Egypt. Farouk stepped into the corporate world for several years at Itek Optical Systems before moving on to a 30-year tenure at Boston University. His awards, honors, fellowships, and board memberships are numerous, reflecting an esteemed career across both the United States and Egypt, and not the least of which include eight honorary doctoral degrees, chairmanship of the U.S. National Committee for Geological Sciences, and NASA’s Apollo Achievement Award.

Both of our new Trustees bring invaluable experience and expansive insight to the Foundation. We hope you will have the opportunity to meet and talk with them through various GSAF activities over the coming years.

We of the Foundation engage with you a great deal about field camp because (1) it remains a critical component for students pursuing geoscience and (2) it is an area in which we can provide substantial assistance. The cost of attending field camp can be prohibitive, particularly now when the COVID-19 pandemic has made already difficult financial situations that much worse. Many GSA student members have benefited from this support over the years, and you, our members, understand the need for, and value of, these scholarships.

We aim to raise funds to help at least 20 students to attend field camp—whether in person, or virtual—next summer. If you have not yet done so, will you make a gift to the J. David Lowell Field Camp Scholarship Program by clicking the DONATE button at the top right? Your support will help students like Maria, Natalea, Quentin, Selena, Daniel, Lana, and Priscilla attend field camp to gain the skills and knowledge to pursue geoscience in a changing world.
