COSA REMINDER | COSA Conference Session Proposals Due in Two Weeks!

Happy Friday everyone –

The COSA steering committee is looking forward to seeing you at the COSA conference at the Grand Hyatt hotel in Vail from Oct 11th – 13th, and exploring topics together related to this year’s theme – “Expect the Unexpected: Building Resilience to Adapt to Change.”

We are a mere two weeks away from the deadline to submit a conference session proposal on Friday May 14th. The COSA community has submitted a number of great session proposals but we still need your session idea to round out the depth and breadth of conference topics, including potential sessions focusing on:

· Innovative management of land with limited staffing

· Managing extreme increases in users

· Educating and welcoming new users

· Tackling large wildfires and fire mitigation

· Balancing a shrinking budget in a pandemic

· Responding to demographic shifts and serving inordinately impacted populations

· Climate adaptation strategies

· Other interesting ideas related to resiliency and adaptation
