About Us

The Long Island Sound Study (LISS) Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) is a volunteer organization that provides ongoing advice to the Federal, state, and local government Management Conference partners working on implementing the Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP) for the restoration and protection of Long Island Sound. The CAC is governed by its By Laws enacted in 1988, and last amended in 2006.

Long Island Sound Study Membership on the CAC is open to individuals representing environmental organizations, businesses, industries, local governments, and other public and private organizations in Connecticut and New York with a demonstrable interest in the restoration and protection of the Sound and its ecosystems.

The CAC meets quarterly on the second Thursday of March, June, September, and December in New York City and Stamford, Connecticut. Meetings are open to the public. Membership is limited to 60 voting members, who are approved by the CAC. Members are committed to the restoration and protection of the Sound, and must abide by the CAC By Laws to remain in good standing.

Long Island Sound Study’s committees and work groups help to implement the Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan for Long Island Sound. Together they represent the Long Island Sound Study Management Conference, a partnership of federal, state, interstate, and local agencies, universities, environmental groups, industry and the public. The Management Conference was convened in March 1988 following the Congressional designation of Long Island Sound as an Estuary of National Significance at the requests of Connecticut and New York.
