Leadership Council & EarthCube Office meet at SDSC

At the last office transition, the Leadership Council (LC) met face-to-face with the new office, and members asked that again with this latest office transition. People met last week at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC), UC San Diego, over two days, Nov. 20-21, for a series of introductions, group work, focused discussions, planning, and priority-setting. NSF Program Director Eva Zanzerkia joined online for a segment, and everyone's willingness to participate fully, listen openly, and contribute thoughtfully led to solid meeting outcomes. It was a great opportunity for alignment and looking ahead.

A meeting summary will be completed by the EarthCube Office (ECO) and will be given to the LC. Committees and teams will receive that info from their LC representatives, and feedback and comments will be invited and welcomed.
