Our Advisory Board helps inform our organizational priorities to ensure MCAP remains responsive to emerging climate-related issues, help define organizational approaches to center principles of equitable resilience and social equity in all facets of our climate resilience research and practice, and will help further develop our organizational mission and values. Advisory board members come from a variety of backgrounds including researchers, practitioners, and recognized leaders in community engagement, climate science and adaptation. The Board also represents a range of partners from federal, state, and local governments, private industry, non-profits, Tribal entities, community organizations, and academia.
Our previous organizational structure included a committee of partners, known as the Conference Committee, who helped plan and coordinate our annual Climate Adaptation Conference. In late 2021 in response to our growing research and capacity building programs, we began the transition to a formal Advisory Board structure to help guide the next phase in organization. Board members serve a two-year term.
