  2. President's Report
    • Highlights
      • Summer Meeting: Thank you all very much for a fun and successful summer meeting. Many very positive and complimentary remarks overall were received. Look forward to hearing the post-meeting survey debrief.
    • Actions
      • 2017 Theme: Looking ahead, it’s time to start thinking about theme for next ESIP year. The Visioneers will restart this Wednesday. Any suggestions and input for them to work with?
      • International Week: Expect a strong ESIP presence throughout the week (Sept 11-17). If there will be an exhibit hall, ESIP will be part of it. This google doc is to coordinate all our activities (e.g., co-hosting a RDA workshop on hackathons how-to, Christine will be a speaker at the International Data Forum, Emily, Rama and others will be presenters or panelists in various SciDataCon sessions). Please add events that you will participate and the ones that you are aware of.
      • Communication: As we recognize that communication as being central to all aspects of ESIP (e.g., how to talk about ESIP internally and externally), improving the effectiveness of our communication will be valuable to ESIP. We are exploring training classes that can benefit the leadership team. If you are interested in participating, please let me know.
