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 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 and to consider active participation on the board or committees.
