On June 18, 2021, Dr. Richard Spinrad became the new Administrator of NOAA. Friends of NOAA (FoNOAA) welcomes Dr.Spinrad to his new role at the Agency, and wishes him success in the NOAA mission. We also welcome Janet Coit as the new Assistant Administrator for Fisheries and Acting Deputy NOAA Administrator.
Now is a critical time for NOAA to have strong leadership while communities across the world face the impacts of extreme weather and climate change. FoNOAA encourages NOAA stakeholders to work collectively to mitigate and adapt to those impacts, and seek long-term solutions together. We appreciate the Senate confirmations of Dr. Spinrad and Ms. Coit to their new leadership roles.
The next Capitol Hill Ocean Week (CHOW) will be June 8-10, 2021. CHOW is hosted by the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation and gathers people together from around the world to learn about ways to sustain the health of our oceans and Great Lakes. More information about CHOW and registration can found at https://marinesanctuary.org/capitol-hill-ocean-week-2021/
As supporters, stakeholders, employees, and partners of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), we appreciate Congress’ historic interest in and support of the agency and urge appropriators to continue their leadership and investment in NOAA. Friends of NOAA strongly supports funding the agency at no less than $6.05 billion in FY17.
