NAUFRP ACTION ITEMS FOR NRI
- The National Research Chair in cooperation with the Regional Research Chairs will each year identify major research priorities from the McIntire-Stennis Strategic Plan and prepare a NAUFRP Research One-Pager.
- In early November of each year send the research one-pager to the appropriate NRI national program managers and follow-up with telephone calls as well as scheduling a face to face meeting with NRI program managers at the time of the March NAUFRP Executive Committee meeting in Washington, DC. This document should also be communicated to FRAC through the NAUFRP representative.
- Develop a standing list (updated each year) of faculty that are qualified and willing to serve on a NRI review panel and communicate this list directly to the appropriate national program managers. In support of this effort we must make it clear to faculty that we will value and reward participation on national review panels.
