Welcome to the web site for the Forestry and Agriculture Greenhouse Gas Modeling Forum. Information on the upcoming Seventh workshop to be held October 7 - 10, 2013, as well as the Forum's six previous workshops, can be found on the left-hand menu.
FORUM HAS BEEN POSTPONED
Forestry and Agriculture GHG Modeling Forum Participants,
As you know, there is currently a government shutdown due to Congressional inaction on budgeting issues.
Due to the shutdown continuing past noon Eastern Time on Friday, 10/4/13, we are forced to postpone the Forum. Our venue is run by the Fish and Wildlife Service and is closed until the shutdown ends. Their policy is to cancel all events for the following week if they are not open before noon Eastern Time of the Friday before the event.
We are asking for your help in minimizing travel expenses by immediately cancelling travel arrangements, including flights. Your lodging at NCTC should have been cancelled automatically as of noon 10/4/13 due to the facility's continued closure. We encourage participants to mention that the cancellation of travel reservations was due to the government shutdown and see if airlines and others will waive fees, but we will reimburse participants for cancelation fees incurred. Details regarding reimbursements will be worked out after Federal employees at the funding agencies have returned from furlough.
We are already looking into possible dates to reschedule the Forum and you will be notified immediately when the event is rescheduled.
If you have any questions or comments in the meantime, please contact Robert Beach at firstname.lastname@example.org or 919-257-7226.
We thank you for your patience and hope that most or all of you can attend the rescheduled Forum,
Forum Organizing Committee
