LRM Stakeholder Advisory Group

Stakeholder Advisory Group members will attend the four Stakeholder Work Group meetings -- some serving as Work Group Chairs -- supported by MDoA staff to set agendas, lead meetings, and ensure the Work Goup is achieving it's goal.​ They will also attend four Advisory Group meetings to discuss progress and finalize recommendations to be included in the LRM Plan. The primary role of the LRM Stakeholder Advisory Group is to:
