Network Alignment Action Teams

Voting Participants have selected the five priorities for the upcoming year, and Action Teams have been developed for each. Each group consists of two co-chairs and a group of participants that work together to define work they want to do, how they intend to do it and carry it out.

The Action Teams are part of a broader strategy to inspire members to connect with one another, align on topics and bodies of work that are important and work together in productive ways. This ‘connect-align-produce’ sequence is a foundational network concept that reflects an understanding that “as connections are made, the potential for members to align emerges, and after that members start to undertake collective projects.” It supports USCAN’s theory of change, which is that if we work together we will successfully impact climate change.

Composition of Action Teams

Up to ten people from member organizations may participate on the Action Teams, in addition to the two Voting Participants (for a total of up to 12).

USCAN is committed to equity and justice in principle and practice. To honor this commitment with regard to the composition of Action Teams, scholarships are available to ensure that Indigenous People, people of color and folks working in low income communities are supported to serve in leadership roles.

Expectations and Responsibilities of Action Teams Participants

  1. Attend calls and review notes/recordings of calls if missed.
