The Lake Champlain Basin Program’s efforts are guided by the Lake Champlain Steering Committee. The Steering Committee is advised by a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC), an Education and Outreach Advisory Committee, a Heritage Area Program Advisory Committee, and Citizens Advisory Committees in New York, Vermont, and Québec. Committee meetings are open to the public; view the LCBP Meetings schedule and list of LCBP Committee members.
The Steering Committee serves as forum for information exchange and a mechanism to coordinate state and provincial policies and programs. Created by the Memorandum of Understanding on Environmental Cooperation on the Management of Lake Champlain in 1988, it is the only formal, international, tri-party, government-based institution currently focused on Lake Champlain.
