The 2018 Arctic Research Community Reception will be held following the ARCUS Annual Meeting, from 7:00-8:30 p.m. (Eastern Time). All members of the international Arctic research community, regardless of whether or not you are participating in the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting are invited to join their Arctic research colleagues in conversation, networking, and socializing. No ticket is required. We do invite you to register, however, to help us ensure we have plenty of tasty appetizers and bar offerings on hand!

The event will be held at the Arctic Community Meeting Rooms which ARCUS hosts at the AGU Fall meeting each year, with sponsorship support provided by the National Science Foundation. If you are also looking for space to hold an Arctic community side-event or meeting during the week of Dec 10-14, please send us a room reservation request here!
