The four focus teams (Safe and Sustainable Seafood, Sustainable Coastal Development, Healthy Coastal Ecosystems. Hazard Resilience) are holding concurrent working sessions from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm, addressing four questions:
- How well is the National Sea Grant College Program achieving the focus area’s national goals?
- What are the national impacts in the focus area that should be highlighted in communication products and reporting?
- Where are the gaps in the focus area’s National Strategic Plan?
- What are new opportunities or future directions for the focus area?
At 4 pm, teams come together to report on their discussions, followed by brainstorming about partnership building, new directions and cross-cutting topics as we move into the future. We hope to summarize the report-out and brainstorming session here.
The registration table will be open in the Crowne Plaza lobby from 3-5 pm for new arrivals.
