Working Groups and Clusters

Strategic Planning Working Group

In response to the growth of the ESIP Federation during the past 3 years, one of the Federation's sponsors suggested that the organization undergo a strategic review. President Hutchinson organized a small working group from members of the Executive Committee to review the ESIP Federation's mission, vision, strategic direction and related activities. In addition to the input session on Vision for the Future held at the summer 2007 meeting, the Working Group held its first meeting on July 20, 2007. Check back here periodically to learn more about what is going on.

Members of the Working Group:
  • Chuck Hutchinson, Chair
  • Rob Raskin, ESIP Federation Vice President
  • Bruce Caron, ESIP Federation Finance & Appropriations Committee Chair
  • Chris Lenhardt, ESIP Type I Representative
  • Peter Fox, ESIP Type II Representative
  • Kerry Handron, ESIP Type III Representative
  • Stefan Falke, ESIP Commercial Development Committee Chair
  • Tamara Ledley, ESIP Educatino Commnittee Chair

Meeting Visioneering Working Group

At the November 2005 ExCom teleconference the Meeting Visioneering Working Group was set up to provide advice and support for the planning of the ESIP annual meetings. Bruce Caron volunteered to chair this working group.

The working group consists of the vice chairs from the standing committees, the vice president of the Federation, the ESIP Type representatives and any other ESIP members who care to contribute.

The working group will report back to the ExCom on a regular basis.
