Executive Steering Committee

The Executive Steering Committee is made up of seven members elected by the Board of Governors. The Executive Steering Committee prioritizes recommendations, reviews Expressions of Interest, and decides which projects are funded in the fairest manner possible and in accordance with the SCCOOS mission. The committee also meets to formulate scopes of work documented in the Operational Plan and advises our Board of Governors on technical manners and strategic planning.
