Save the Date—Public Meeting on New Organizational Framework to be Held on November 14, 2018

September 10, 2018

The next public meeting will be held on November 14, 2018

Thank you to those who joined us on June 20-21, 2018 in Rhode Island to tour the Block Island Wind Farm and discuss the implications of the recently signed Executive Order 13840“Ocean Policy to Advance the Economic, Security, and Environmental Interests of the United States.”

Since June, members of the Northeast Regional Ocean Council (NROC) and the former Regional Planning Body (RPB) have been considering different organizational options for advancing regional ocean management priorities, including regional data priorities and coordination around regulatory and management decision-making. As such, we ask that you please hold November 14, 2018 for our next in-person meeting where we intend to obtain your input on our proposed framework for moving forward and, importantly, on regional ocean management and data priorities. This meeting will likely be held in southern Maine or New Hampshire.

We will send more details when they become available.
