The Utah Society for Environmental Education (USEE) embarked on a Strategic Planning process during the summer of 2018. To ensure they were supporting the needs all of our environmental education communities here in Utah, USEE convened focus groups (called them mini-summits) in 5 distinct regions of the state. The Community Engagement Guidelines for Excellence were the framework upon which the mini-summits were built.
