NPLCC Composition, Operations, and Staffing

The NPLCC is governed by a Steering Committee.  A core staff reports to the Committee and implements both the strategic plan and the day-to-day operations of the LCC.  The Committee establishes and supervises standing Subcommittees and other ad hoc groups to help execute its responsibilities.  Standing committees include a Tribal/First Nations Committee, and the following subcommittees: Science/Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK), Communications/Outreach, and Partnership Liaison.  The subcommittees are loosely defined, flexible, responsive and diverse in representation of perspectives.
