Member Meetings

Each year, NCSE holds Member-focused engagement events to provide opportunities for our community to learn together, discuss shared challenges and successes, form partnerships, and grow as a cohesive network. 

Historically, NCSE has held a Summer Member Meeting, hosted by an NCSE Member institution, and a Winter Member Meeting, held in conjunction with the NCSE Annual Conference. 

In 2020-2021, all of our Member Engagement events have pivoted to a virtual format. In lieu of the Summer Member Meeting in 2020, NCSE will be holding the Science Dialogues series, a two-part engagement series to explore how decision-makers access and use science and to equip each participant with the skills needed to navigate the science policy landscape to set up, prepare for, and engage in a meeting with a decision-maker. The Winter Member Meeting will be held virtually, but at a time distinct from the Annual Conference. Learn more.
