Council Meetings: May 2013 Council Coordination Committee

May 2013 Council Coordination Committee Meeting

The Council Coordination Committee (CCC) consists of the chairs, vice chairs, and executive directors of each of the eight Regional Councils, and is authorized under Section 302(l) of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act in order to discuss issues of relevance to all Councils, including issues related to the implementation of the Act.  The CCC normally meets twice per year. Generally, an interim meeting is held early in the calendar year to discuss budgets and other pressing matters and is hosted by NMFS in Washington, D.C. The primary, annual CCC meeting is hosted, on a revolving basis, by one of the Councils, normally in later spring or early summer. The CCC terms of reference provide additional detail on the function and operation of the CCC.

The Pacific Fishery Management Council hosted the 2013 CCC meeting in conjunction with the “Managing Our Nations Fisheries 3” conference in Washington D.C., which was also hosted by the Pacific Council.  The CCC met May 6, 9, and 10, 2013 at the Mayflower Renaissance Hotel.  A “Summary of the Decisions” reached at that meeting are now available.

Briefing materials for the CCC meeting are available electronically through the links below.  Agenda item letters and numbers correspond with the planned schedule; however, the order of the agenda items may have changed as required to effectively address the issues.
