Cooperative Monitoring, Evaluation, and Research Committee
The Cooperative Monitoring, Evaluation, and Research (CMER) Committee is a monitoring, evaluation, and research program established by the Forest Practices Board. Its purpose is to ensure effective implementation of the recommendations contained in the Forests and Fish Report.
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 operate 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 does not take public comments at these meetings.
CMER holds regular monthly meetings attended by CMER members, its Scientific Advisory Group's co-chairs, and other interested parties. Meetings are generally held on the fourth Tuesday of each month at the DNR Compound - Washington State Light Industrial Park, 801 88th Avenue, Tumwater, Washington. Occasionally, the meeting date or location is moved to accommodate holidays or meeting room conflicts. CMER operates on the basis of consensus of all parties. Contact the Forest Practices Division by calling 360-902-1400 to confirm meeting dates and locations.
