The summer Federation meeting in Asheville, North Carolina has shaped up
to be one of our strongest meetings ever.  Hosted by NOAA's National
Climatic Data Center, the meeting will offer Federation members a
variety of sessions - a full line up of technical workshops,
education-focused sessions, GIS for science, applications and education,
plenary sessions from NOAA, NASA ESE Data Systems Working Groups and
Ocean.US.  Also featured is the annual election of the Federation's
leadership and an opportunity for you to provide your input into the
direction of the Federation through the draft strategic plan.  In all,
the agenda is strong; more than 100 people have registered; and we are
heading to one of the most beautiful small cities in the United States.

is a reason you come, then come prepared to meet your "match."  Fill out
