Advisory Council Meetings

PNNST Advisory Council News Releases Membership Resources

We anticipate holding the next in-person meeting of the advisory council after members are appointed, likely in fall 2020. This will be a two- or three-day meeting at a location to be determined in Montana, Idaho, or Washington, proximate to the Pacific Northwest Trail. We anticipate holding similar in-person meetings twice a year, in the spring and fall, for the duration of the advisory council.
