Joint Strategic Advisory Committee

Joint Strategic Advisory Committee

The primary mission of the Joint Strategic Advisory Committee (JSAC) is to advise the Regional Associations in the State of California, to include both SCCOOS and CeNCOOS , on how best to meet end user needs within the state. The JSAC will meet nominally once a year, alternating between the CeNCOOS and SCCOOS regions, to continually update the two Regional Associations on management needs, industry needs, best products, etc. Membership in the JSAC is state-wide, and is determined by invitations extended by the joint leadership of CeNCOOS and SCCOOS. Members of the Governing Council’s EC are invited to the JSAC meetings.
