The ESIP Winter Meeting starts next week! We hope you're getting as excited as we are for the meeting and that you'll be able to join us for as much of the event as you can. I have had ears on a lot of breakout session planning conversations at various cluster telecons and I can tell you that, thanks in large part to the session leads and speakers, this will be another dynamic meeting where we as a community will push the envelope on what it means to learn from each other and collaborate in a virtual space. If you haven't yet registered, please try to do so by this Friday January 22nd.
Also this week is a chance to join our ESIP101 Webinar, a fast-paced overview of ESIP and how to get involved for those who are new to the community or looking to learn more. If you feel so inclined, please help us out by telling a colleague or two! More info is in the ESIP News section below.
Have a wonderful week,
Megan Carter Orlando
ESIP Community Director
