Hello Coast Survey,

This is the 50th edition of our online staff newsletter. Sharing our stories regularly throughout the year, whether it’s project milestones, awards, new hires, outreach events, or upcoming opportunities, is an important way to stay connected. Thank you to everyone that contributes and please keep your stories coming.

As 2018 comes to a close, I wish you and your families a happy holiday and New Year. I am proud of our accomplishments in 2018 and look forward to working together in 2019.
