Note from ESIP President
Summer is in full swing here in the Northern Hemisphere, and that means … no, not vacations at the beach, cookouts on the deck, or afternoons at the baseball stadium — it’s the July ESIP Meeting!
The meeting kicks off in just eight days, and I am thrilled to be meeting in person again for the first time since January 2020. There is so much to be excited about: thought-provoking plenaries, deep-dive breakout sessions, the mind-expanding Research Showcase, and, of course, the truly unique-to-ESIP FUNding Friday, which will include a Local Innovators Meet-n-Greet at the poster making session. And if you are joining us virtually I look forward to engaging in our Q&As and discussions.
But what has me most excited is the chance to connect. The chance to see old friends and meet new, soon-to-be old friends. The chance to learn, share, discuss, debate, argue, collaborate, critique, review, revise, iterate, and advance our shared goals of making environmental data usable by everyone, everywhere, at any time… Doing that together with each of you in the ESIP community and beyond is what has me most excited and has me eagerly counting down the days.
