Management Committee


The Management Committee is comprised of representatives of the Long Island Sound Study Management Conference, established by Congress in 1985 to develop a Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan for restoring and protecting Long Island Sound. Management Committee members help develop the annual work plan for the Long Island Sound Study and oversee the implementation of CCMP goals and objectives.
