MAFMC to Hold Public Meetings for Input on 2020-2024 Strategic Planning Process

The Mid-Atlantic Council will hold three in-person public meetings, and one public webinar, to seek additional feedback on the development of their 2020-2024 Strategic Plan. The new strategic plan will be informed by progress on the 2014-2018 Strategic Plan, stakeholder feedback, and management partner outreach.   

The public is invited to attend these meetings to provide feedback on performance relative to the 2014-2018 Strategic Plan, and to identify recommendations, challenges, and opportunities for the next five years. In addition, participants will review preliminary results of the strategic planning stakeholder survey conducted earlier this year.

The meeting schedule is as follows:

  1. Wednesday, April 24, 2019 at 6:00 PM: University of Rhode Island Bay Campus, Corless Auditorium, South Ferry Road, Narragansett, RI 02882.

  2. Monday, May 6, 2019 at 5:30 PM: Ocean County Administrative Building Room 119, 101 Hooper Ave, Toms River, NJ 08753.

  4. Tuesday, May 21, 2019 at 5:30PM: Virginia Marine Resources Commission (New Location), 380 Fenwick Road, BLDG 96, Fort Monroe, VA 23651.
