Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


The U.S. Navigating the New Arctic Community Office (NNA-CO) is supporting development of 4 Convergence Working Groups to address collaboratively issues of critical importance to NNA projects and Arctic communities. Each group will work together under a broad theme, with the working group members together determining a more focused set of activities and group outcomes. Before beginning the process of developing team co-leads and participants, the NNA-CO is seeking community input on the themes that might become Convergence Working Group focus areas.

*Please provide your input at this link:*

Through this form, the NNA-CO will collect comments from all interested parties (e.g., Arctic community members, researchers, partners, etc.). These comments will be reviewed and a list of 8 Themes will be evolved for presentation to the broad NNA community before and at the Annual NNA Community Meeting (Nov. 15-17). At that time, the NNA-CO will open up the nomination/application process for those interested in co-leading a Convergence Working Group. Nominees/applicants will indicate their theme(s) of interest. Working group co-leads and Convergence Working Groups Themes will be finalized during winter 2022/23.

*This form is open for comment through August 15, 2022*
