The Trustee Council will hold its fifth annual public meeting via webinar this year due to current nationwide health concerns. The meeting date is July 16, 2020. The webinar is open to everyone and we encourage your attendance and participation.

During this meeting, we will present updates on the progress made by the Trustee Council and in each of the seven Restoration Areas. This meeting will also serve as the annual public meeting for the Regionwide Trustee Implementation Group. We’ll also provide an opportunity for public comments after the updates are presented.

A number of fact sheets are also available below for reading ahead of the webinar.

There are additional questions on the registration page to give you the opportunity to sign up to provide a comment. If you sign up, you will receive a follow up email with additional instructions. If you are not sure if you would like to make a public comment, you will have the opportunity to do so during the webinar.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with information on how to join. We recommend doing a GoToWebinar system check, and reviewing the attendee guide before joining the webinar.

Please contact us at by July 2, 2020, if you need special assistance due to a hearing or visual impairment.

If you are unable to attend the public meeting, we will update the Gulf Spill Restoration website with the presentation and transcript, and we will send a follow-up email with this information when it is available. Last year’s annual public meeting information was made available shortly after the June 2019 meeting.
