For SORA Members

Message from the President:     

SORA State Programs by Region

Committee Activities:

Data-Sharing committee.  Following the development of the Chesapeake Bay agreement, the EPA wanted to look into a national data sharing effort.  They developed a National Data Sharing Workgroup (SORA has representation in this workgroup).  SORA developed the data-sharing committee to aid in this effort and the National Workgroup representative is the Chair of the SORA committee.  The committee conducted a national assessment of Nitrogen reducing technologies to gain a better understanding of what states follow what standards as they pertain to nitrogen reducing technologies and if there would be interest in data sharing.  They received initial responses from all 50 states but are now surveying states that have more than one permitting agency to gain full knowledge of the national viewpoints. The committee Chair is also working with the New England/Long Island Advanced Onsite Data Sharing Workgroup.

Strategic Planning Committee:  The Strategic Planning Committee completed the organizations Strategic Plan last year.  This was a 5 year plan developed to provide the organization with what the committee believed to the future direction of the organization.  Currently the committee is working on an association operation manual.

Conference Planning Committee:  This committee is in charge of working with partners on venue, educational sessions, field trips, and compiling the agenda for the SORA sessions.
