WRP Steering Committee and Committee Co-Chairs Meeting Participants (July 2016)

The membership of the Steering Committee (SC) is composed of senior staff members representing their respective Principal organizations. Membership includes representatives of the Governors’ offices in the WRP States, the major federal Agencies within the WRP region, Native American tribes and the WGA. The SC ongoing responsibilities include:

  • Staff their respective WRP Principals and conduct outreach internally within each WRP SC member organization
  • Bring any relevant issues from their organization to WRP for awareness and potential action
  • Conduct WRP outreach with an emphasis on:
    • Encouraging State, Federal and Tribal participation in WRP Committees
    • Enhancing working relationships with other entities to support leveraging of efforts and reducing redundancies
  • Review WRP Committee actions and provide input to WRP Committee Chairs as appropriate

In 2016-2017, the WRP Steering Committee will:

  • Work with WRP Committees and GIS Support Group to ensure each has a strategic plan for the year that aligns with available resources and does not overcommit WRP Partners or WRP contract support
  • Advance efforts for the 2017 Principals’ meeting
  • Serve as a resource to ensure WRP effectiveness

WRP 2016-2017 Priority: Regional Assessment

WRP is a forum for information exchange, issue identification, problem solving and recommendations across the WRP region. During the WRP 2016-2017 year, WRP will work to better understand the current priorities of its Partners and the continuing or emerging issues impacting their agencies; and to identify and recommend potential available resources (such as grants, agency actions, planning efforts) to address these issues. A report highlighting these items and findings will be presented at the 2017 WRP Principals’ Meeting.
