Dear Michael,

I also look forward to seeing everybody’s response.  I have a feeling they will vary with the majority still expressing uncertainty about receiving permission to travel or personal hesitancy to travel.

I, for one, still do not have a clear direction from my organization, even though I am eager to see colleagues in-person, and cannot answer the question probably for another 2 to 4 weeks.

It might be prudent to plan for a hybrid meeting.

Subject: [EXTERNAL] [CMC] Spring 2021 CCSDS Meetings

Dear CMC Members,

First of all, please accept my apologies if I have been less responsive of late to your messages. I have been managing a family emergency that has divided my attention.

NASA had originally requested a final decision on hosting the spring CCSDS meeting by the end of January, but given the uncertain outlook in January, agreed to extend this date to the beginning of March. With how vaccination programs have progressed, I believe there is enough data to come to a decision at this time. I would ask each CMC member to consider this question and reply with your answer:

               Would attendees from your agency be allowed to attend spring CCSDS meetings as they are now scheduled 10-14 May 2021?

Speaking only for myself and not for NASA, I will not be allowed to travel for business until 1 June 2021 at the earliest and would consequently be unable to attend any meetings.

Best regards,

Michael Blackwood
