*LARRP Executive Committee members
The LARRP Executive Committee (LEC) is comprised of the project coordinator and two members of the Advisory Committee. The project coordinator is the chair. The two Advisory Committee members will serve two-year renewable terms. In the case that the project coordinator cannot fulfill his/her responsibilities, the LEC will temporarily oversee the LARRP project until a new project coordinator is in place.
The Advisory Committee continues to provide leadership in project planning, policy making and financial management. The LEC can make time-sensitive decisions on issues that cannot be adequately considered by the Advisory Committee. (November 1, 2005)
