Abstract: The National Optical Astronomy Observatories hosted a Telescope Proposal Process Workshop in Tucson in mid-August in which representatives of several observatories met to discuss common issues and goals related to proposals for astronomical telescopes. The goals of the Proposal Process Workshop were to develop a shared understanding among observatories, including the National Gemini Offices and the Gemini Project, of the requirements and procedures for telescope proposals, and to encourage cooperation among the national observatories of the Gemini partner countries, STScI, and other institutions faced with similar issues and concerns related to the telescope proposal process. This paper will summarize the issues discussed at the workshop and the actions resulting from these discussions.
