The Partnership for the Delaware Estuary’s (PDE) work is guided by several committees, in addition to its Board of Directors. The Steering Committee is comprised of agency leaders that work together to provide the policy and financial framework needed to set and achieve goals for the Delaware Estuary as part of the National Estuary Program. The Estuary Implementation Committee (EIC) is comprised of agency representatives that work together to coordinate and implement the long-term plan for the Delaware Estuary. The Science and Technical Advisory Committee (STAC) advises the PDE and these partners on their scientific endeavors. Each of these hosts regular meetings, most of which are open to the public.
