Citizens Advisory Committee

Scope and Purpose

The Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) is charged with responsibility for representing residents and stakeholders of the Chesapeake Bay watershed in the restoration effort and advising the Chesapeake Bay Program Partnership on all aspects of Chesapeake Bay restoration. In this role, they have been strong, vocal advocates for increased transparency and accountability, citizens engagement and education, and independent evaluation of the restoration work of the Partnership. Members communicate with their constituencies to increase understanding of the Agreement and programs to restore and protect the Bay. The membership is broad-based with representatives from agricultural and homebuilding industries, business, conservation, environmental foundations, law, and civic groups. Since 1984, this group has provided a non-governmental perspective on the Bay cleanup effort and on how Bay Program policies and programs affect citizens who live and work in the Chesapeake Bay watershed.
