Community Alliance Workshop
The 2011 Annual Meeting Forum will examine whether our consortium should develop alliances to tackle big challenges facing our community and nation. You may recall from last year’s meeting survey that we had ~65 universities interested/involved in university-city climate/severe weather adaptation partnerships and ~100 universities interested/involved in climate/severe weather adaptation curriculum development.
We will hold a one-day workshop on Thursday, 6 October (day following the 4-5 Oct Members’ Meeting) to
refine a community plan for this type of curriculum alliance and the university-city partnerships, and
examine how we should reach out to corporate and urban/state leaders to show them why this alliance and partnerships would benefit them.
We hope you will attend. (Click here for additional Forum/Workshop info.)
