Dr. Donald Boesch - Regional Boards and Committees
I currently on a number of boards and committees for important programs and organizations within Maryland and the Chesapeake Bay region:
|The Chesapeake Research Consortium (CRC) is an organization of six major universities and research institutions. It provides institutional support to the CBP's STAC, operates a management fellows program, holds conferences and workshops, and coordinates collaborative research activities among member institutions. I serve as the University System of Maryland's principal representative on the CRC Board.|
|The Chesapeake Bay Foundation is an educational and environmental advocacy organization with over 116,000 members. CBF's mission is to restore and sustain the Bay's ecosystem by substantially improving water quality and productivity of the watershed, with respect to water clarity, resilience of the system, and diversity and abundance of living resources, and to maintain a high quality of life for the people of the Chesapeake Bay region. I served as a member of the Foundation’s Board of Trustees for 18 years and became an Honorary Trustee in 2013.
|The Governor's Chesapeake Bay Cabinet is a subcabinet council of Maryland's Governor for interagency coordination and integration of Chesapeake Bay-related activities. I serve as the University System of Maryland's principal representative on the Bay Cabinet. Governor Martin O'Malley has, through this council, initiated BayStat Chesapeake to assure that Bay management and restoration programs are reaching their maximum efficiency and that together they complement each other to assure maximum overall efficiency and effectiveness.|
