2006 ESA Annual Meeting

2006 ESA Annual Meeting

December 10-13, 2006

The Indiana  Convention Center and RCA Dome

Indianapolis, Indiana

President Frank E. Gilstrap chose "Give Something Back -- Time, Skills, Resources" as the theme for ESA’s 2006 Annual Meeting in Indianapolis, Indiana. The intent of the theme was to encourage members to become actively involved in the ESA and to look for ways to increase our leadership corps. Yogi Berra once said, “You can observe a lot just by watching.” His humor, intended or unintended, should not describe our members. Scientists can tolerate watching for only so long and eventually propose to make things happen. ESA has an incredibly diverse group of members within the Society, including many who have volunteered their time, skills and resources to make our science known and appreciated worldwide. This was an exciting year for ESA members, with many new, innovative changes ahead. What better way to end the year and start anew than with a tremendous Annual Meeting?
