"I am on the TGRR Communications team. Volunteering enables me to have a voice in the creation of materials on TGRR activities so I can better share TGRR news to my networks on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter to reach colleagues, students, and members of professional groups I belong to.

It’s fulfilling to be part of TGRR because it enables me to contribute positively to groundwater management, collaborate and network with other groundwater experts and attract funding for groundwater projects
