The IRIS Consortium is in an excellent position as we enter our new 5-year cooperative agreement with the NSF, thanks to exceptional leadership, highly qualified professional staff, and an engaged community. The success of EarthScope has demonstrated the power of community experiments and the value of this type of project as a complement to PI driven science and our core facilities. Since its inception, IRIS has been driven by the science needs of the seismological research community. Science drivers provide the motivation and framework for facilities development and consortium activities and are essential to position the consortium for the future. As a consortium, as we look toward future recompetition of seismological facilities, we should embrace the opportunity to demonstrate the strength, benefit, and cost effectiveness of community run facilities to advance research and education in seismology.
