Development of Gateways Network Support Organization

The Chesapeake Bay Gateways Network Working Group is pursuing development of a support partner organization for the Gateways Network. Such an organization is intended to further enhance the Network's abilities to secure additional funding sources and marketing, and carry out certain projects.

Initial discussions about the support organization idea were held with Gateways Network members during a series of workshops in November/December 2001. In 2002 and 2003, the Gateways Network Working Group discussed and developed a series of principles for guiding the development of a support organization. Those principles were explored in depth at a May 2003 workshop involving over 25 Gateways and Working Group members. In September 2003, the Working Group circulated a proposal for developing the support partner to all Gateways. The proposal was discussed and concurred with at the November 2003 Gateways Network conference. In January 2004, the Working Group appointed a committee to guide development of the support partner.
