Priorities & Solutions

Priorities and Solutions Project Update

The Priorities and Solutions Project seeks your input on the draft content of the project report. We continue to seek your feedback on the draft. Although the content should reflect the conversations at the workshop, the audience for the final documents is broad. The main audience here is not peers in our profession, but rather, external stakeholders, policy makers, and agencies. We seek your input as to how to make these priority areas appealing to many different contacts across government and partners.
We want to make sure they are inspiring and engaging. Much progress has been made, but there is still more work to be done. Your input is important.
Input is due by Tuesday, September 6.
The full draft Priorities and Solutions document can be found here. A survey monkey for input on the Priorities and Solutions draft can be completed here.
