Serve in the Resilience Dialogues

The Resilience Dialogues is a public-private collaboration that works to build climate-resilient communities through facilitated dialogues among scientists, practitioners, and community leaders. ASAP and the U.S. Global Change Research Program work in close coordination on the design, development, and implementation of this effort, along with support from the American Geophysical Union’s Thriving Earth Exchange, the Meridian Institute, and other public and private entities.

Participate in the Resilience Dialogues Strategy Discussions: The completion of our Fall 2018 dialogues marks more than 20 communities served by the program over the past three years. We have heard from many of you that now is a good opportunity to think about how our program can scale and grow so that we are able to bring even more value to more communities. We agree, and are grateful to be able to thoughtfully consider strategic issues like how to successfully and equitably recruit small and underserved communities to participate in the Resilience Dialogues, and how to measure the impact of our program in terms of its contributions to community climate resilience. We hope you will contribute your ideas to this process! Please reach out to Rachel Jacobson at [email protected] if you would like to be contacted about opportunities to participate.

Serve in the ASAP Mentorship Program

The ASAP Mentorship Program connects emerging climate resilience and adaptation professionals with accomplished ASAP members. The program provides a nine month framework for engagement focused around the needs of the mentee, and gives the mentor an opportunity share their professional knowledge, experience, and network. Our next Mentorship Program Cohort will begin January 2019. 

Serve on an Advisory Group or Working Group

Registry Project Working Group: ASAP and our partners at EcoAdapt are convening climate change adaptation professionals to help us create a process for connecting climate adaptation service providers with service seekers. This opportunity is now closed. Thank you to our volunteers!

Professional Education Member Advisory Group: ASAP’s new Member Advisory Group on Professional Education will convene every 1-2 months between November 2018-September 2019 to explore the education and professional development needs of adaptation professionals and help define ASAP’s role in this space. This opportunity is now closed. Thank you to our volunteers!

Thank you to all of ASAP’s volunteers! Our programs are a success because of your time and effort!
