  1. Communicate and share current and future work with a core group of self-selected faculty and staff representing all program areas of extension who meet regularly via list serve, social media and video conference.
  2. Represent participating Land and Sea Grant Universities, national associations, and related committees and organizations.
  3. Meet annually via each association conferences and affirm progress.
  4. Pursue grant funding collaboratively.
