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 will mark 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.

Become a Mentor: Mentor recruitment is now OPEN for our next Mentorship Program Cohort, which will begin in January 2019. We are seeking at least 20 accomplished adaptation professionals to serve as mentors. If you have been working as an adaptation professional for at least five years and are excited about connecting with emerging adaptation leaders, this is the opportunity for you! Fill out this form by October 29.

Lead the ASAP Mentorship Program: ASAP is recruiting a new co-leader for the Mentorship Program. This is an opportunity to meet and meaningfully connect with a diverse group of ASAP members. Mentorship Co-Lead is an 18-24 month volunteer commitment to working with ASAP staff to refine and implement the Mentorship Program. This includes spending between 1-5 hours/month (depending on phase of the program cycle) helping recruit mentors and mentees, organizing and running webinars, and developing program materials. Through these tasks, you will have the opportunity to learn from a diverse group of experts and emerging professionals. In particular, you will support emerging adaptation professionals as they set goals, develop new skills, and expand their networks, all the while sharing in their successes. Interested? Email Rachel Jacobson at [email protected].

 


Serve on an Advisory Group or Working Group

Join the Registry Project Working Group: ASAP and our partners at EcoAdapt are seeking climate change adaptation professionals to help us create a process for connecting climate adaptation service providers with service seekers. This process will use existing networks to gather information about service providers that is useful to service seekers and use existing online platforms and software to make that information accessible and user friendly will. The commitment is ten hours/month between November 2018-June 2019 providing insight and advice developing and piloting the Registry process. Working Group members will receive compensation of an $850 stipend. Click Here for more information and apply for the group by filling out this form by October 22.

Join the Professional Education Member Advisory Group: We need your voice for ASAP’s new Member Advisory Group on Professional Education. The group will convene every 1-2 months between October 2018-September 2019 to explore the education and professional development needs of adaptation professionals and help define ASAP’s role in this space. This is an opportunity to:

  • Gain visibility for your organization’s professional education resources.
  • Network with other ASAP members and climate adaptation leaders.
  • Give back to the climate adaptation field and help shape its future by sharing your expertise and experiences.
  • Inform how ASAP will design and deliver capacity building resources and opportunities.

Please see this recruitment notice and submit your statement of interest via this form by October 22.
