CMP Steering Committee

The Crown Managers Partnership chooses an Interagency Steering Committee (Steering Committee) from their members, which includes representatives from aboriginal agenices; Federal, Provincial and State agencies; the Universities of Calgary and Montana; and the Secretariat. The Steering Committee strives for representation from a variety of geographic areas and resource management sectors.

The Steering Committee takes its direction from the Partnership through the Annual Forum, and implements that direction through annually-reviewed Strategic Plans and Annual Workplans.

Steering Committee responsibilities include:

  • maintenance and direction of the strategic and annual work plans;
  • fund development to support the CMP's work;
  • promotion of the CMP, both within and outside of their own agencies;
  • oversight of the Secretariat, and any other entities operating on the CMP's behalf; and
  • maintenance of the Steering Committee membership.
