Subject: [ESIP-all] Strategic Planning
Dear ESIP Federation Partners and Friends:
The ESIP Federation has been in the midst of a tremendous period of 
growth, change and vision. As the organization has grown from 24 
original partners to more than 100, change was inevitable. From its 
creation by NASA, to the current support from NOAA and EPA (in addition 
to the continued support from NASA), the ESIP Federation has broadened 
its membership, priorities and scope. In the 3 years since the last 
strategic plan was developed, change seems to have accelerated. I am 
pleased to announce that we are undertaking another strategic planning 
process, which I expect will provide a roadmap for the ESIP Federation 
into the next decade.
To kick off the strategic planning process, I would like to invite you 
to share your thoughts about the ESIP Federation by completing an online

survey. A team of ESIP Federation Officers and Representatives (Rob 
Raskin, Bruce Caron, Jami Montgomery, Kerry Handron, Stefan Falke, Chris

Lenhardt and I) constitute the Strategic Planning Working Group. (See 
the charge 
to the Strategic Planning Working Group.) Our first activity is to 
survey you, the ESIP Federation's most important asset. We value what 
you have to say and will use your input to help make the ESIP Federation

a stronger organization for the next decade and beyond. We will work, in

conjunction with the ESIP Federation's Executive Committee, to draft a 
new strategic plan. We hope to share the preliminary findings of that 
plan with you in January 2008 at the Washington, DC area ESIP Federation

Please take a few minutes to complete the online survey. We have posted 
several reference documents for you to consider when answering these 
questions. Please visit the ESIP Federation wiki 
to check out many of the documents that we will be using to guide our 
work. The survey software allows you to complete the survey in waves if 
you are unable to complete it in one sitting. I estimate that the survey

will take 20 minutes to complete. The survey will remain open for 
approximately 30 days. You may access the survey by clicking here 
I very much appreciate your dedication and willingness to offer us your 
insight. If you have any questions about this process, please feel free 
to contact me or any other member of the Strategic Planning Working 
Group. My email address is chuck at ag.arizona.edu
