Canadian Steering Committee
The NCASI Board of Governors appoints an Operating Committee in the U.S. and a Steering Committee in Canada. These committees are composed of Member Company senior personnel familiar with the environmental issues facing the forest products industry. The U.S. Operating and Canadian Steering Committees meet several times annually to identify and prioritize the research projects undertaken by NCASI’s Technical Studies Program and to monitor progress toward achieving program results. Ad hoc committees and specialists convene as needed to provide expert advice in specific fields, such as forestry and health effects.
