· Talk with report authors, members of the National Climate Assessment and Development Advisory Committee, and National Climate Assessment staff about how the information provided in National Climate Assessment products is and can be used in various decision making contexts
· Collaborate with other meeting participants to identify ways that you and your community can participate in the long-term National Climate Assessment process.
