Governance:
The CHNEP Management Conference Committees

The Coastal & Heartland National Estuary Partnership (CHNEP) is comprised of a "Management Conference", a partnership of public and private entities working together through structured committees. 

The Partnership works to protect water and other natural resources in the CHNEP area by building consensus and undertaking a variety of natural resource protection, restoration and education activities that are based on sound science. 

By bringing local, state, and federal government representatives together with public stakeholders and community leaders, collaborations and efficiencies emerge to create bigger environmental benefits and outcomes.
