West Coast Ocean Data Portal Action Coordination Team 


The West Coast Ocean Data Portal Action Coordination Team (WCODP ACT) is a group of dedicated individuals representing organizations, agencies, and tribes from around the West Coast who act as a steering committee to work with the WCGA Executive Committee and other WCGA ACTs to develop the WCODP ACT Workplan, manage and apply for grant funds, and guide the progress of the Network Working Groups. You can read our workplan and meeting notes here.
