*It's happening!*

It’s happening! We are on track to formally become the EarthScope
Consortium on January 1, 2023. All the services and data you’ve come to
expect from the SAGE and GAGE facilities will continue uninterrupted.
You’ll see a new logo, new online presence on the web and in social media,
and new governance.

*Advisory Committees*

The EarthScope Consortium needs your knowledge and expertise! The
EarthScope Board of Directors-elect is actively recruiting community
members to serve on the five new advisory committees
Consider nominating yourself or a colleague
for any of the committees. Even if you are not interested in serving in
2023, adding your name to the list for consideration in the future will
help ensure we have a full and diverse representation of the community.


*New EarthScope Website*

The website for EarthScope Consortium went live today! In addition, all of
the information you rely on related to instrumentation, data, and other
topics will still be available on and—additionally the
PASSCAL web pages will remain the same for now. The EarthScope website will
provide an interface to help you find whatever you are looking for as well
as highlight news, geophysical events, membership, and governance. Visit

*Connecting with EarthScope Consortium*

Some elements of the merger will be realized after January 1, including the
migration of many existing mailing lists. We appreciate your patience in
this, and will ensure that all of our community email and other
communication channels remain open and effective.

A new EarthScope General Announcements list has been created by merging the
subscribers to the primary UNAVCO and IRIS announcement lists—if you were
were already on one of those lists, you won't miss a thing. Keep an eye out
for a welcome message! For more information, visit the Mailing Lists page
of our new website.
