Please save the date for the first Exchange Network Forum on Thursday, November 9 from 1:00 to 2:00 PM Eastern.
The Exchange Network is launching a monthly Open Forum to improve communication among partners in EPA, States, Tribes, and Territories. The Exchange Network is a community who works together to improve data sharing, leading to better decision-making to protect people and the environment. Going forward, Exchange Network Forum calls will typically be held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month.
The EN Forum is a venue to discuss how to improve and better use the Exchange Network’s services and partnerships to share information among EPA, States, Tribes, and Territories. The Forum provides an opportunity for Exchange Network partners to:
- Learn about important Exchange Network information and updates;
- Share challenges and opportunities to improve the Exchange Network’s collaborative model, communication channels, and technical framework; and
- Learn about innovative ways EPA, States and Tribes are using the Exchange Network.
The Exchange Network is planning a reinvigoration and the Forum will provide an opportunity for partner agencies and programs to share valuable feedback with EN leadership. The following are example discussion topics and the type of work that is envisioned in the first phases of this reinvigoration:
- Finalize the E-Enterprise Digital Strategy and move forward in operationalizing the strategy’s principles.
- Host a meeting with the Tribes, States and EPA to discuss how to improve Tribal Engagement in the Exchange Network.
- Analyze the Exchange Network data flows to understand the current state so the Exchange Network can move to an improved future state.
After the initial Forum on November 9th, we will typically meet on the second Wednesday of every month via Zoom. The meetings are open to all Exchange Network partners in the EPA programs, States, Tribes, and Territories.
A Zoom link will be provided shortly.
