1. Outreach

  • PEI collaboration

  • Antarctica day-inspired

  • Ellyn working with PEI on getting a list of teachers together who are interested

  • Field photo database

  • Mia is in charge!

  • PolarTrek teachers are definitely interested, too

  • Kristina can help coordinate

  • Random emails work, too

  • Instructions would be really handy for people

  • FAQ list would be good

  • have APECS members let USAPECS know

  • Jim will work on getting something together

  • Reddit AMAs

  • Twitter advertising helpful. Twitter event less helpful.

  • Advertise on ArcticInfo

2. 2016 Webinars and Events


  • Broader impacts (Alice organizing)

  • Figures/color (Allen Pope organizing)

  • Writing for general audiences (Lauren)

  • Making posters (Sara/Kristina)


  • Science & Policy Workshop @ Arctic Science Summit Week, Fairbanks, AK. March 14, 2016

  • Local events?

  • Possibly remind people that local events are a good thing. Have one event and then send it out and encourage others to do the same?

  • Boulder might be a good place to start since there is already a large polar contingent there.

3. Board elections in January

Alice will send out emails starting in early January. We need a new co-chair to replace Alice!
