The Forest Ecosystem Monitoring Cooperative is governed by a Steering Committee that encompasses key partners from across the region. The Steering Committee is supported in the setting of regional priorities and the execution of regional work by a State Partnership Committee in each participating state.

When the Vermont Monitoring Cooperative expanded to become the Forest Ecosystem Monitoring Cooperative, it did so by expanding its committee structure, and thus there are some committees that are still being formed. This page will be updated as those committees come together.
