EL Statement -- Elawsesip (talk) 10:21, 1 December 2015 (MST)

Emily Law Data Systems and Technology Deputy Program Manager, NASA/JPL, Caltech, CA.

I, Emily Law, hereby declare my candidacy for President of the ESIP Federation. It is a privilege to be nominated for the position. Currently, I am serving the Federation as the Vice President for the 2nd term. Previously, I served as a Type Representative and as a member of the Board of The Foundation for Earth Science. As a long-standing member of the ESIP Federation, I value the opportunities the Federation offers to collaborate and work together with other science, data and technology practitioners who share a common interest in advancing Earth science information and making Earth science data, tools and services more useful to our user communities. If elected as the President, I will do my best to serve the Federation and the Board. I will work closely with the Vice President, Foundation executive director, other officers as well as the staff and the community to help grow and strengthen capabilities of the Federation. I hope to have this opportunity and would be honored to serve and work cooperatively with all ESIP participants to contribute in ways that count for the Federation and the Foundation, as well as make a difference. Thank you for your support of my nomination!
