Organization Description
The Vermont Citizens Advisory Committee on Lake Champlain’s Future (VTCAC) is recruiting one member to serve in the committee’s vacant Citizen-at-Large seat. The VTCAC is a diverse group of community members, lake advocates, business representatives, farmers, and legislators united through their interest in a clean, healthy Lake Champlain. The 14-member committee (ten community members and four state legislators) provides an opportunity for diverse interests to work together to develop an action agenda for improving water quality and enhancing the natural, cultural, recreational, and economic resources of the Lake Champlain Basin. VTCAC members are charged with submitting an annual report to the Vermont General Assembly that maps out recommended actions to protect the integrity of the lake. The VTCAC meets regularly as an organization and annually with New York and Quebec CACs to discuss issues of mutual concern and to advise the Lake Champlain Steering Committee. The Lake Champlain Steering Committee guides the Lake Champlain Basin Program and is responsible for implementing the Lake Champlain Management Plan "Opportunities for Action."
