MIST Council would like to emphasise that this is an excellent opportunity to contribute to and shape the field on an international scale, and we hope to see members from the MIST community putting themselves forward.
We will be discussing this further and sharing ideas on the #public-engagement channel on the MIST Slack workspace. If you aren’t on the MIST Slack workspace then click here for details.

Call for MIST/GEM Liaisons
There is a potential opening for a member of the MIST community to act as a liaison with the GEM (Geospace Environment Modelling) group. This will be an opportunity to act as a representative of the UK MIST community and inform GEM about relevant activities within the MIST community.
GEM liaisons will typically have the following responsibilities:
Help recruit new GEM Steering Committee members (as needed)
Provide feedback from the MIST community and share with the GEM Chair/Vice Chair (ongoing)
