Fall 2021 Steering Committee zoom meeting.

The CEDAR Science Steering Committee (CSSC), formerly known as the CEDAR Steering Committee (CSC), has been in existence since 1987. The CSSC is responsible for periodic checks on the community science progress and direction, in coordination with the CEDAR community. The CSSC organizes the scientific content of the annual CEDAR Workshop and connects with other programs.

The CSSC meetings are not open to the public, but the CSSC welcomes any input from the CEDAR community by contacting the current CSSC members.

The CSSC supports the development of CEDAR strategic documents


"The steering committee's role is to help the community do what it wants to do, rather than to tell it what to do."

— G. Romick
