Policy Advisory Committee

The New Hampshire Sea Grant Policy Advisory Committee (PAC) provides valuable guidance in identifying research and outreach priorities, as well as strategic partnerships and initiatives. To ensure NH Sea Grant is fulfilling its mission, PAC members are drawn from the various NH Sea Grant networks, both existing and potential, and are considered for both thematic (e.g., climate, fisheries) and partner organization representation. Membership of the PAC is periodically assessed and additions are considered to maintain representation across NH demographics and Sea Grant Focus Areas.
