Sponsorship Opportunities: We are looking for a few more sponsors to enable us to take this meeting to the next level! If your organization understands the power of bringing people together to move Earth science data interoperability forward, we hope you will consider providing sponsorship. ESIP is all about collaboration and if sponsoring a break is not up your alley, but you would like the visibility that sponsorship provides, please reach out and let us know what might be a win for both ESIP and you.
