Annual Membership Provides the Opportunity to:

How it Works

Consortium membership is a one-year term with the opportunity to renew. New and renewed research & special projects begin and end at the date indicated on the membership agreement. Research & special project scoping, goals, and outcomes are developed in conjunction with members. Updates are provided to members on a quarterly basis. Project outcomes will be presented at end of term meeting. Members support and engage in the annual research & special projects agenda at the kick-off meeting.
