In January, five circles met (Asset Management, Book Group, Design, New Member, and Planning & Resilience) while other circles took a break. For February, there will be four meetings with Greenprint Partners for ongoing work on the GSI Framework (aka Playbook). Most regular circle programing will take a break in February and repurpose their meeting time for the Framework.

Asset Management: In January, Raleigh provided an update on how they continues to advance GSI.

Book Group: In January, we started Nature-Based Solutions for Cities (2023), which is an open access edited collection. We discussed Chapters 1 – 3 (30 pages). In February, we will discuss chapters 4 and 5.

Innovations in Design: In January, Pittsburgh and the Exchange presented their 3 Rivers Wet Weather Sewer Conference presentation, which is based on the State of Public Sector Green Stormwater Infrastructure.

New Member: In January new members dropped in for an orientations to the Exchange with SPPC (Strategic Planning & Policy Committee) members.

Planning & Resilience: In January, Boston and MARC (Mid-America Regional Council in Kansas City region) presented on their organizational structures at different levels and scales (e.g., context, demographics, geographies, small and large institutional frameworks).
