Steering Committee

Steering Committee membership reflects the diversity in the basin, with the composition of members including, federal, state (Oregon and California), tribal, non-profit, and private enterprises. The Steering Committee facilitates full group meetings; sets meeting agendas; and guides the KBMP as a whole in an effort to keep workflow going outside of full group meetings. The Steering Committee makes decisions regarding external communication and protocols regarding internal policies and procedures. The steering committee works with the various committees and KBMP staff in an effort to implement the mission and the vision of the program. The Steering Committee defines and applies criteria for disbursement of funds, prioritizes program elements, and provides long-term strategies for program success.

The Steering Committee operates through consensus and collaboration. Each member has equal voice. The chair, co-chair and secretary of the committee shall be elected every year. The role of the chair confers no additional powers or privileges; the co-chair may serve as an alternate to the chair. The role of the chair is to facilitate the meetings and uphold the gradients of agreement. The role of the secretary is to take meeting notes and distribute to members and post on the website, if appropriate. The secretary also records meeting notes at the annual member meeting and facilitates the approval process prior to distribution.
