IAN staff came together for a one-day retreat at the Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center in Grasonville, MD.
Annual IAN staff retreat at Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center
Two dozen Integration and Application Network staff gathered on Maryland's Eastern Shore at the Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center for our annual retreat. Everyone provided photos and music to introduce themselves to each other, which was important with many new staff having recently joined IAN. We discussed ways to improve the IAN report card scores as well as soliciting suggestions for better indicators and goals for future report card iterations. We did some stakeholder mapping in support of Chesapeake Bay restoration, prioritizing how we can empower, engage, and foster leadership in various sectors. We also discussed the IAN 'brand' by identifying key stakeholders, their goals, and feelings in order for us to develop a suite of potential tag lines to describe our IAN activities. We also took our group photo and enjoyed watching the wildlife at the venue.

The Integration & Application Network is an initiative of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science.
