VEXAG is seeking volunteers for VEXAG Executive Committee members to replace those who have successfully completed their service to the Venus community. The new members will start in 2017 for a term that run for three years. Also, the VEXAG Early Career Scholars Focus Group is looking for interested group members.

If you are interested, send your resume and a statement of how you could contribute to VEXAG to Bob Grimm and Martha Gilmore, VEXAG Chair and Deputy Chair (grimm@boulder.swri.edu, mgilmore@wesleyan.edu) by January 6, 2017.

VEXAG activities for the next three years are expected to be community building with an emphasis on:

- Venus Exploration Goals, Objectives, and Strategies
- Technology Development and Laboratory Measurements
- International Collaboration
- Early Career and Young Scholar Development
- Venus Exploration Roadmaps

VEXAG is a community-based forum established in July 2005 to assess scientific priorities and strategies for exploration of Venus. VEXAG is currently composed of a chair and five focus groups, where the focus groups actively solicit input from the Venus community on the topics listed above.
