The Adaptive Management Program established by the Forest Practices Board holds Cooperative Monitoring, Evaluation, and Research (CMER) meetings. The purpose of CMER meetings is to conduct necessary business and scientific discussions associated with planning, design, and implementation of research and monitoring projects conducted by CMER to meet Forest Practices Adaptive Management Program goals. The meetings are broken up into a morning science session, which consists of presentations or discussions of scientific topics relevant to the work of CMER, and an afternoon business meeting. These meetings are open to anyone who wishes to participate and operates on the basis of consensus of all parties. If consensus cannot be reached a decision is limited to the Board-approved membership. The CMER Committee will not take public comments at these meetings.
