Agenda items include a brief recap of the initial meeting; a discussion of what the group should be named and how it should proceed (vision, objectives); a discussion of how it would be structured (steering committee, subcommittees?); identification of work priorities and hot topics; and a determination of future meeting dates and locations.

The initial meeting was called for by action of the Arizona Game and Fish Commission earlier this year. Commissioner Kurt Davis was asked to chair an ad hoc group that would explore ways to unite constituents in working together in a positive manner on issues and challenges affecting the future of hunting, fishing and wildlife management in Arizona.
