Past Annual Meetings

ARCUS has held an Annual Meeting nearly every year since its inception in 1988. Historically, these meetings have taken place as independent teleconferences as well as face-to-face meetings in conjunction with other events, such as the Arctic Forum, the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Science Policy Conference, and the AGU Fall Meeting.

The meetings serve to gather members, the Board of Directors, and the staff of ARCUS together with other members of the Arctic research community and key agency personnel and policy makers.
