Task Forces

NEPPP Task Forces

From time to time, a Partnership’s Board or Steering Committee may appoint working groups of persons possessing special knowledge or expertise for the development of programs, tasks, and activities, or to perform other actions which promote the objectives of the Partnership.

For their duration, each of the task forces (or action item committees) will have a leader(s), a defined work scope, a list of deliverable items, and an expected completion date.
