The Pacific Fishery Management Council (Pacific Council) will convene an online meeting of its Ad Hoc Equity and Environmental Justice Committee (EEJC) to elect a chair and make plans for its first working meeting. This online meeting is open to the public and will be held Tuesday, July 11, 2023, from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time. The scheduled ending time for this meeting is an estimate and will adjourn when business for the day is completed.
This meeting is being conducted remotely with a web broadcast that provides the opportunity for remote public comment. In the event an outage occurs or technical issues arise that impact the experience of remote attendees, we will attempt to resolve them but ultimately we cannot guarantee that they will be resolved satisfactorily.
Purpose of the meeting
The EEJC will have an organizational meeting to elect a chair and plan for its first working session. This committee was formed by the Pacific Council at its April 2023 meeting to advise the Pacific Council on working with NMFS on the forthcoming EEJ Strategy Regional Implementation Plan and the Geographic Strategic Plan. No management actions will be decided by the EEJC but recommendations may be provided to the Pacific Council at its September 7-14, 2023 meeting.
Requests for sign language interpretation or other auxiliary aids should be directed to Kris Kleinschmidt at 503-280-2412 at least ten business days prior to the meeting date.
