Bumping a previous EA forum post: Key EA decision-makers on the future of EA, reflections on the past year, and more (MCF 2023).

This post recaps a survey about EA 'meta' topics (eg., talent pipelines, community building mistakes, field-building projects, etc.) that was completed by this year's Meta Coordination Forum attendees. Meta Coordination Forum is an event for people in senior positions at community- and field-building orgs/programs, like CEA, 80K, and Open Philanthropy's Global Catastrophic Risk Capacity Building team. (The event has previously gone by the name 'Leaders Forum.')

This post received less attention than I thought it would, so I'm bumping it here to make it a bit more well-known that this survey summary exists. All feedback is welcome!

Thank you for posting this!

I find these questions and consideration really interesting, and I could see myself experiment with researching questions of this sort for 3 months. As a relatively junior person though who may end up doing this independently, I worry about none of the thinking/writing I'd do on one of these topics actually changing anything. Do you have any advice on making this type of research useful?  

Thanks for putting on this event and sharing the takeaways!

Any plans to address these would come from the individuals or orgs working in this space. (This event wasn't a collective decision-making body, and wasn't aimed at creating a cross-org plan to address these—it was more about helping individuals refine their own plans). 

Re the talent development pipeline for AI safety and governance, some relevant orgs/programs I'm aware of off the top of my head include:

FYI that this is the first of a few Meta Coordination Forum survey summaries. More coming in the next two weeks!
