Roundtable Participation
The Roundtable currently consists of more than 150 participants from 75 organizations. Participants come to as many meetings as they can and respond to Delphi in between meetings. Some participants have also joined work groups.

A modified Delphi Process of obtaining a reliable consensus opinion from a group of experts is used between meetings to facilitate progress and momentum on key issues. The Sustainable Rangelands Roundtable has customized the Delphi process to clarify the range of opinions and define points of disagreement so that agreement might be made during meetings. For each Delphi Round a question or questionnaire is designed; participants respond; and replies are collated, summarized, and distributed with a new round of questions designed to reach wider agreement. This process does not necessarily generate a single agreed-upon answer. Rather, the Delphi method promotes a spread of opinion.
