ESIP Update¬†ūüĆ≥ Are you joining us in Pittsburgh?

It's been a while. What is an in-person ESIP Meeting going to be like?

A Note from Susan

Hello ESIP!

Our priority for the July 2022 ESIP Meeting is to provide a joyful, engaging, and in-person experience in Pittsburgh.  

You have told us how much you all miss the benefits of face-to-face networking, sharing a cup of coffee with a colleague, and making the new connections that we know fuel innovation. Renewing and deepening these connections is paramount in our meeting planning and design. 

We realize that not everyone is able to travel to Pittsburgh. Hybrid formats make accessibility and cost difficult, too. We are prioritizing in-person gathering this July but there will be limited virtual options. To try and get the best of both virtual and in-person events, we are committed to delivering a robust and interactive online meeting in January 2023. 

We will continue to add details in our FAQ on and you can stay up-to-date with the ESIP Meeting agenda on Sched.

Thank you for your enthusiasm and thoughtfulness as we make a big shift back to in-person gatherings. We CAN’T WAIT to see you in Pittsburgh!

Susan Shingledecker
Executive Director, ESIP
