Coordination and Structure

The ACJV is supported by six staff members that coordinate the work of the partnership, including grants, projects, technical committees, outreach and communications that advance ACJV priorities.

The ACJV is governed by a Management Board, comprised of key representatives from the organizations that form its core partnership. The Management Board provides overall leadership, guidance, resources, and support to partners to ensure that our Joint Venture reaches its bird and habitat conservation goals.

The ACJV Technical Committee serves as a technical advisory body to the ACJV partnership. The primary role of the Technical Committee is to help create strategies, plans, and other science-based guidance to advance our bird conservation efforts. Technical committee members include scientists, land managers, biologists, and other experts in migratory bird science and conservation. They represent universities, federal agencies, state fish and wildlife agencies, and non-governmental organizations.
