The Leadership Council for the Albemarle-Pamlico National Estuary Partnership works with the program office and its host agency to support, evaluate, update, advocate and guide the implementation of APNEP's mission.
The Leadership Council (formerly the Policy Board) was most recently restructured and reauthorized through North Carolina Governor's Executive Order #26 in 2017. The Leadership Council includes representation from various interests in the basin, as well as representatives from APNEP two other management conferences including the Science and Technical Advisory Committee (STAC) and the Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC).
