Report on Review of the Plan Committee

The NAWMP Plan Committee (PC) acknowledges receipt of the report on the “Review of the Plan Committee – Achieving NAWMP Objectives” that was submitted by the Institutions Subcommittee on January 15, 2018. The Plan Committee thanks the members of the sub-committee and all those individuals that provided input to the report for their time and commitment to ensuring the future of the North American Waterfowl Management Plan.

The PC reviewed and discussed the report at its meeting on April 10, 2018 and concurs with the report’s content regarding the need for greater:
      •   clarity of its role and accountability;
     •   linkage between the Plan Committee and the NAWMP working groups; and
     •   linkage among the NAWMP working groups.

However, the need for a coordinator to support these outcomes requires further discussion.

The PC accepts the recommendation to replace the Interim Integration Committee (IIC) and to adopt a new system of liaisons between the PC and the NAWMP working groups. The PC intends to consider further strategic actions during a planning session in the summer of 2018 and to communicate the
outcomes of this session to the NAWMP community.
