Council of Regions
Formed in 2002, the Council of Regions is a forum for Washington's regional recovery plan leaders to develop solutions to common issues and to coordinate implementation of shared priorities.
Meetings are facilitated by a chairperson chosen by council members. Assistance is provided by the Governor’s Salmon Recovery Office and the Recreation and Conservation Office.
The council has no independent decision making authority. It serves as an advisory body, providing information and recommendations to member regions, the Salmon Recovery Funding Board, and state and federal agencies about regional salmon recovery policies, implementation strategies, and monitoring coordination.
