OSO's Advisory Board Convenes


Earlier this week, members of OSO's Advisory Board met with the O'Neill Sea Odyssey Board of Directors and staff to review the proposed Five Year Strategic Plan for 2019-2023. Following Executive Director Dan Haifley's presentation, various input and ideas were discussed which the BOD will consider in the final version of the plan, to go into effect January 1, 2019 and guide O'Neill Sea Odyssey's annual operations through the end of 2023.

Advisory Board members in attendance were (from left to right):  Mike Rotkin, Stephany Aguilar, Jess Brown, Emily Reilly, Ana Ventura Phares, Harvey Nickelson, Joyce Anderson, and Robert Stephens.

In addition, presentations were provided by both Education Coordinator, Laura Walker, and Operations Coordinator, Adam Steckley. Laura discussed the ongoing project to distribute OSO's science curriculum nationally through the Pepper College Readiness Network while Adam shared results and highlights of the 100,000th Student Campaign including details about the upcoming milestone celebration.


Thanks to all who support the program, O'Neill Sea Odyssey is poised for continued success over the next five years and beyond!
