    I might need to be in another NAF pre-forum meeting for the CSC tribal liaisons, but I will do my best to come to the ASAP meeting if I am able!

    Will you have remote access to the meeting – as I unfortunately have a conflict. I am very interested in getting more involved with the work you are doing. I am a volunteer with the New Orleans Water Collaborative as well as a member of the Atkins Federal Resilience Team – working to strengthen communities.

    I’m definitely going to be there for the first in-person ASAP Member meeting. Very excited to see everyone in person and see how I can best continue to support ASAP over the course of the year.

    I am also having a meeting Monday 08 May 1 – 5; hope to have mine and then come to the ASAP meeting.
    I would like to ask ASAP for help on a project: At the Forum, we will be working on a priorities list for issues and actions to help accelerate agricultural adaptation, and to improve the flow of information between conventional, alternative and traditional/Indigenous agriculture. All ideas are welcome; ideally in a short description and with a few key references or websites or supporting information.

    Wish I could join the ASAP meeting, but I will be coming straight from a session at the APA Conference. I will be there on Tuesday night though- just in time for my poster session! See you all in St. Paul!

    Looking forward to the meeting. I think there is going to be a lot of conversations next week around the evolving roles of each of our own organizations through Public/Private Partnerships and I see ASAP playing a great role is establishing the professional network for all of us working in this space. Thanks to all for their continued leadership through this important transition phase!
