North Pacific Coast Marine Resource Committee is an advisory committee for marine issues on Washington State’s outer coast communities of Clallam and Jefferson Counties that stretches from Cape Flattery in the north, to the mouth of the Queets River in the south.

The stakeholder committee includes representatives from Jefferson and Clallam Counties, the City of Forks, the Hoh, Quileute and Makah Tribes, and six citizen stakeholders representing local fishing, education, conservation, marine science and business interests.

This meeting will include a workshop to review and comment on social indicators developed by Washington Sea Grant’s social science team.

Two basic goals for the workshops include:

  • Present the assessment of human wellbeing in the 4 coastal counties, focusing on key domains (Social Connectedness, Economic Security, Basic Needs, Health, Access to Social Services, Education, Safety, Governance, and Environmental Condition);
  • Get input on missing indicator priority areas (if any) for which there is existing data.

The workshop/meeting provides an opportunity for communities to identify social indicator data needs for future phases, which will be included in reports to the State.
