The reauthorization of the MSA in 2007 established a Council Coordination Committee, or CCC.
The CCC consists of the chairs, vice chairs, and executive directors from each council, or other staff, as appropriate. This committee meets twice each year to discuss issues relevant to all councils, including issues related to the implementation of the MSA. NOAA Fisheries hosts one meeting in January or February of each year, and the second meeting, hosted by one of the councils, is usually held in May or June.
NOAA Fisheries is committed to the timely implementation of all provisions of the MSA. Regular face-to-face meetings or conferences between NOAA Fisheries and the leadership of the eight councils are critical to ensure administrative and MSA priorities are met.
