Three Centers Retreat Biannual Meeting Recap
On Wed March 17, the leadership teams of the North Central CASC, NOAA's Western Water Assessment, and USDA Northern Plains Climate Hub met virtually for their bi-annual retreat. The retreat served as a chance for each center to provide an update on recent activities, outline expected activities for the coming year and opportunities for collaboration, and discuss shifts in agency and program priorities. The group also discussed lessons learned during the pandemic about stakeholder engagement and outreach that might be carried forward even after in person interactions are possible again. A second retreat for 2021 will occur in late summer/early fall.
The group also acknowledged the milestone of an all-female leadership team convening to discuss their strategy and vision for regional science collaboration during Women's History Month (https://womenshistorymonth.gov/) .
