NRCS State Technical Advisory Committee (STAC)

The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) State Technical Advisory Committee (STAC) is a group composed of agricultural producers, owners/operators of nonindustrial private forest land, federal and state agency representatives, and other professionals who provide information, analysis, and recommendations to officials of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) on implementing and establishing priorities and criteria for natural resources conservation activities and programs. The STAC has no implementation or enforcement authority, but USDA gives strong consideration to the STAC’s recommendations.

Patti Playfair and Alan Walker currently represent WFFA on this committee.

Committee meetings are held by teleconferencing approximately 4 times per year.
