Dr. Brian McCornack (Kansas State University, Class 12), chair of the Grand Challenges Committee, will lead a discussion on how to best prepare letters of intent for consideration as one of this year’s Action Teams. Forming teams starts with understanding your “why” but also strategizing your first steps as a group. Brian will provide some guiding principles on how to best select project ideas that leverage current assets while identifying key opportunities for successful action team development. Start small, grow tall! And join in the conversation.
