This session is a community meeting of the NASA Cosmic Origins Program Analysis Group (COPAG). The COPAG is responsible for soliciting and coordinating community input into the development and execution of NASA's Cosmic Origins Program (COP). The COPAG serves as a community-based, interdisciplinary forum for analysis in support of Cosmic Origins objectives and of their implications for architecture planning, activity prioritization and for future exploration. It provides findings and analyses to NASA through the NASA Advisory Council (NAC) within which the COPAG Chair is a member of the Astrophysics Subcommittee. We will present a description of the on-going COPAG activities and tasks. We will outline how the COPAG plans to operate in the near future. All interested AAS meeting attendees are encouraged to come and participate and provide their thoughts and suggestions.
