The Western Alaska LCC is governed by a Steering Committee, which provides guidance and oversight to staff, following the mission and goals. Members of the Steering Committee represent Federal, State and Alaska Native stakeholders who have a vested interest in the development of applied science products related to climate change in Western Alaska. State and Federal entities are represented by up to two seats each and there are three seats designated for representation of Alaska Native perspectives.
Governance of the LCC is detailed in the Charter. Our longer-term approach to science is detailed in the Strategic Science Plan, while the Operating Plan provides a framework for the major activities the LCC will undertake in the near term.
