Digital Solutions Better Inform Council Members and Save Resources
The North Pacific Fishery Management Council (NPFMC) is one of eight regional councils in the United States that manages fisheries; it also happens to be the largest. Agendas for Council meetings are so large, NPFMC staffers had to start compiling them a month in advance. More often than not, these agendas were comprised of a ream and a half of paper each, or roughly 750 pages. With 80 members on the council, NPFMC would go through 60-100,000 sheets of paper per meeting.
