Joint Board Meetings
Posted 07 July 2014, 1:49 pm NDT
Last month the Torngat Wildlife and Plants Co-Management Board (TWPCB) and Torngat Joint Fisheries Board (TJFB) had their annual joint board meeting. The purpose of the meeting is to keep members of each board informed of the ongoing work, research and the strategic plan for the upcoming year. There was emphasis on a stewardship and education strategy. This strategy focusses on creating a positive relationship through strengthening community values and feelings of responsibility. This is achieved through a community-based approach. I learned a lot while sitting in on the meetings - the purpose and goal of each board and about the research programs. It was also nice to see the emphasis and importance of stewardship and education to the boards.
