Certified Participating Groups

As prescribed by OPA 90, certified stakeholder groups are those which have chosen to support our efforts on behalf of their organization, are open to offering members to serve on the Council, and want to be in a position of being represented, kept informed, and consulted. On a three-year, rotating basis, these groups nominate and elect a representative and an alternate. We encourage interested groups to participate in the leadership of the Council through the one-time certification process. Contact Cook Inlet RCAC for more information.
