Science and Technical Advisory Committee

Column Paragraph


APNEP's Scientific and Technical Advisory Committee (STAC) provides scientific and technical guidance to the Partnership on measures to restore and protect the natural resources of the Albemarle-Pamlico region. Since its inception in 2004, the STAC has worked to enhance scientific communication and outreach throughout the region.

The STAC provides scientific and technical advice in various ways, including (1) technical reports and papers, (2) discussion groups, (3) assistance in organizing merit reviews of APNEP programs and projects, (4) technical conferences and workshops, and (5) service by STAC members on APNEP subcommittees and workgroups. The Committee also acts proactively to bring the most recent scientific information to APNEP and its partners.  As an APNEP advisory committee, two representatives from the STAC serve on the Leadership Council, and STAC representatives also consult with members of the Implementation Advisory Committee.
