Federation Meeting Visioneers are coordinating an excellent program
focused on Stewardship.  Registration is now open and is available by

Federation's meeting wiki
Early registration continues through May 29.  Housing options include
dorm and hotel possibilities.  Both lodging options have early deadlines
(May 22 and 29 respectively) so please reserve early. Dorm rooms are
reserved when you register for the meeting and are available as single

The dorm cost is inclusive of 4 nights' lodging and cannot be prorated.
As always, ESIP Federation meetings are participatory.  Many ideas are
floating around and we're encouraging all to put their topics onto the
wiki.  We continue to seek input into the meeting agenda, with
