People Network Calls and Other Opportunities in July

It’s hard to believe that another year has gone by and PEARC24 is only weeks away in Providence, RI – we hope to see many of you there and will distribute separate communications listing CaRCC activities at PEARC. With the conference on the horizon, many People Network Tracks are canceling their calls for July. But please mark your calendars for the below events still planned, including our usual run-down of calls from our RCD ecosystem partners and collaborators that touch many, if not all, in our community. 

For handy calendar entries, try the CaRCC People Network Calendar (GCal view, integrate). If you’re not on our mailing lists, please fill out our Join the People Network form to also join our Slack channel.

As we continue into summer, we’d also like to offer a warm and heartfelt thank-you and congratulations to both Claire Mizumoto (UCSD) and Anita Orendt (Univ Utah), who are retiring. Both have played significant roles throughout the history of CaRCC: Claire as an early co-coordinator for the Researcher Facing Track, RCD Nexus grant co-PI, long-time co-Chair for the Engagement operational group, Capabilities Model working group, and Staff/Student Workforce Development interest group; and Anita as co-Chair for the Staff/Student Workforce Development interest group, member of the Engagement operational group, and team-lead for the website group. Please join us in celebrating their efforts and accomplishments, and in wishing them the best as they move on to new adventures!

Thank you,
Your People Network Coordinators and Track Coordinators
(care of Lauren Michael)
