Scott,

I really like the idea of the ESC interns and the suggested ways to reward them. I think that if the Board agrees with this, not only will it help on the ESC, but it will be something the Board can point to as a way to reaching out to the group of unhappy graduate students.

Also one suggestion re: conference information. It would be nice if presenters could indicate which presenters will be physically at the session. I know I had a number of grad students tell me last week that they went to a session where X was the second or third author, hoping that X would there, and even though X was at the conference X was not at the session. I know that there will also be things that come up, but this would help those who are looking to attend a session based on who as opposed to what.

Other than that, a comprehensive overview.
