The Academy Issues 2019-2020 Action Plan

May 27, 2019

The Academy convened its annual Members’ Meeting in East Lansing, Michigan on March 10-11, 2019. The conversations were robust and afforded members the opportunity to review work undertaken since the previous Members’ Meeting in Minneapolis, and to draft an Action Plan to frame Academy initiatives for 2019-2020. The Action Plan also calls for greater member participation in specific committees and task forces meant to advance the Academy's collective work.
