[enviroCar-discuss] Fwd: Vision and mission, Citizen Science Association

Daniel Nüst
Hi enviroCar community!

The Citizen Science 2015 conference will take plase in San Jose,
California: http://citizenscienceassociation.org/conference/

I think the open enviroCar platform would be a very interesting
contribution to such a meeting and just wanted to share the date in case
somebody with ties to enviroCar is in that area at that time. The will
be a "data management & visualisation" thread.

Best regards,

      Dear Daniel,

Membership matters!

*Citizen Science Association
members who joined before 15 March 2014 voted to determine the
association's vision and mission statements. The results are now in...

      Results of 15 Feb - 15 March 2014 voting by CSA members on
      proposed vision and mission statements

*A. A world where people understand, value, and participate in citizen
B. A global community of practice for citizen science
C. No response

*A. Advance citizen science through communication, coordination, and
B. Foster communication, collaboration, and professional development in
citizen science
C. No response

There were clear, almost two-to-one choices in each case. There were
also hundreds of useful suggestions as to how each statement might be

*For now,* the CSA is adopting the vision and mission statements as
decided by this vote. This will allow the CSA to establish an identity
for seeking additional members and additional support.

*Moving forward*, all suggestions are being reviewed and synthesized by
committee members to see if alternative statements emerge. The
longer-term identity - and leadership - of the CSA will be established
by members through voting in February 2015 (more details below).

      Citizen Science 2015 Conference

*San Jose, California, USA
11-12 February 2015*

Mark your calendars! The 2015 Conference
will kick off voting for CSA leadership. Online voting will open after
the conference, but all are encouraged to attend to meet (or become!)
candidates for the CSA Board of Directors.
