About the Meeting

The two standing Technical Subcommittees, the Quality Assurance Advisory Group, the Data Management Advisory Group, the Science Committees, and any ad hoc groups meet during this period to work on issues related to NADP management and operations. Through involvement in a subcommittee, committee or group, a member gains voting rights within that group on issues of importance to the NADP. Decisions are determined by majority vote within each group. Each subcommittee and group operates independently, although issues that are relevant to the mission of more than one committee or group may be discussed and voted on in joint session. Motions passed in joint session are considered to have the same standing as motions passed separately by the individual subcommittees. Motions passed by the individual subcommittees and in joint sessions are brought to the EC for final approval
