Washington Coastal Marine Advisory Council

In May 2013, Governor Inslee signed a bill into law that established the Washington Coastal Marine Advisory Council in the Office of the Governor. Ecology is assigned the primary staff support for the council. This new council will replace the former Washington Coastal Marine Advisory Council established by Ecology in 2011. Past meeting materials for the previous Washington Coastal Marine Advisory Council are archived here.

If you are interested in receiving announcements about meetings of the council, we encourage you to sign up for our ocean email listserv. If you have any questions about the Advisory Council, please contact Jennifer Hennessey (360-407-6595).
