Last summer, a Strategic Planning Working Group was formed by the ESIP 
Federation's Executive Committee.  Members of the Working Group were 
chosen from a subset of the Executive Committee and included:

Charles Hutchinson, Chair

Rob Raskin

Bruce Caron

Chris Lenhardt

Jami Montgomery

Kerry Handron

Jeff Arnfield

Stefan Falke

Tamara Ledley


In addition, federal agency partners were invited to participate in 
Working Group meetings. The first output of the Working Group is a draft 
Strategic Plan for 2008-2013.  The Working Group will continue to meet 
to examine governance and operational needs to realize the Strategic 
Plan's goals and objectives.


The Working Group is seeking broader input to the Plan, which may be 
formalized at the July 2008 ESIP Federation meeting.  A copy of the Plan 
is attached to this message and is also available on the ESIP Federation 
wiki at 


The Working Group invites you to join an upcoming telecon during which 
members of the ESIP Federation can provide feedback and input into this 
draft Strategic Plan.  Telecons are scheduled for:


Monday, June 9, 2008 at 2 pm EDT

Tuesday, June 17, 2008 at 2 pm EDT


To participate in either discussion, please use the following numbers:
