The ARCUS Annual Meeting is an important opportunity for ARCUS' Members, Board of Directors, staff, and other interested individuals to meet, talk, and connect with one another around key Arctic research and education issues and collaboration opportunities.

The meeting is open to all interested participants and there is no cost to attend. The meeting will focus on small group discussions to encourage sharing and networking.

Meeting Goals & Summary Report

The goals of the ARCUS Annual Meeting are to:

  • CONNECT: Bring ARCUS members and others from the Arctic research and education community together to meet, talk, and connect.
  • SHARE: Explore what ARCUS members are doing to address key challenges and opportunities.
  • ADVANCE: Identify actionable ways that the ARCUS community can work together and support each other.

Meeting Atmosphere, "Dress Code", & Code of Conduct

ARCUS Annual Meetings are intentionally designed to be fun, casual networking events. ALL ARE WELCOME and we completely appreciate the quirks and interruptions that accompany virtual participation (pets are always welcome to our meetings). With the meeting being the day after Halloween this year, costumes and funny hats are once again welcome to help make the Annual Meeting a fun experience! We also invite everyone to take a couple moments to review the ARCUS Annual Meeting Code of Conduct to help ensure a positive experience for all participants.

ARCUS will be sharing images and short videos of our community members during meeting breaks to help everyone get to know each other better. These could be snapshots of you at work (or play) in the Arctic or more general photos of everyday life with friends, family, and pets! If you have any photos or short video links that you would like to contribute to our community album, please provide links to or upload your files below.

To better serve our community, we are interested in learning more about who attends ARCUS events. The questions below are optional and may be skipped if you've completed them in prior ARCUS event registration forms. We will not share your individual data outside of ARCUS.
