The AIC is headed to West Maui, HI to participate in the 32nd U.S. Coral Reef Task Force (USCRTF). Every other meeting is held in a jurisdiction, which is particularly helpful as they allow participants from all over the country to see, first hand, techniques, projects, resources, and tools being applied in coral reef ecosystem management at the local level. This meeting will be held within the West Maui Watershed, one of the priority watersheds of the USCRTF.

The AIC is starting off the week a bit early (working through the weekend!) with an AIC Strategic Planning Retreat on Saturday and Sunday. The AIC Meeting will take place on Monday, September 8th. The rest of the week is packed to the gills with working group meetings, site visits, workshops, a Steering Committee meeting on Wednesday, and public Business Meeting on Thursday.

Stay tuned here and on our Facebook page for updates throughout the meeting!
