ECWG Dinner: “The Future of Exploration.”

February 10 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Explorers Club members, member’s guests, associates, & friends are cordially invited to the February 2024 dinner & presentation by Mr. Terry Garcia, to be held at the Cosmos Club on Saturday, February 10th, 2024 at 6:00 PM.

About our Speaker Mr. Terry Garcia

Mr. Terry Garcia is the CEO of Exploration Ventures and former Executive Vice President and Chief Science and Exploration Officer of the National Geographic Society. In his recently published book, The Future of Exploration, Terry Garcia and co-author Chris Rainer gather 38 of the world’s leading explorers, scientists, conservationists, and thinkers to discuss the next frontiers of exploration. To the backdrop of remarkable photographs that take us to the bottom of the ocean, to the highest mountains on earth, far out into space, and everywhere in between, these passionate voices reveal the wonder of human exploration and ingenuity, and share their vision and hope for the future.

Prior to joining National Geographic in 1999, Terry was Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Oceans and Atmosphere, U.S. Department of Commerce, and Deputy Administrator of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). He also served as NOAA’s General Counsel from 1994 to 1996. In these roles, he participated in all major policy decisions of the largest agency in the Department of Commerce, managed the development and execution of NOAA’s programs and budgets and helped lead the development of the agency’s first comprehensive multiyear strategic plan. Among other accomplishments, he oversaw a major initiative to streamline NOAA’s regulatory programs, re-engineered the federal government’s approach to the assessment and recovery of damages for injuries to natural resources, negotiated the first collective bargaining agreement with NOAA general counsel employees and led the implementation of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Restoration Plan.
