Guided Group Discussions

M:AP Your Opinion Matters!

We want your perspective to be included in the research project currently being conducted by the AGU Council titled Mission:Alignment Project (M:AP). The Council's first order of business is aligning to the new mission and strategic plan, and is addressing the following question:

Given our strategic plan, stakeholder expectations of AGU, and what is being asked of science and our members — How does our science need to be organized, recognized, rewarded, disseminated and promoted?

You have two opportunities at the Fall Meeting to voice your opinion:

  1. Attend one of the guided group discussions being held on Monday and Tuesday. Specific times are listed below.
  2. Participate in an online survey. Details will be provided in San Francisco at your section or focus group meeting, the AGU booth in the exhibit hall, or Moscone West Room 2012.
