The Stewardship Advisory Team (SAT) is an 18-member team that consists of area representatives from Corps HQ, Divisions, Districts, Projects, and Research elements. The SAT's function is to provide oversight for the Stewardship Support Program (SSP) and serve as an ad-hoc committee to the Chief of the Natural Resources Management Branch in HQUSACE. The SAT provides guidance and review for the SSP. The SAT assists in providing support for natural resources stewardship issues or initiatives that have broad applicability to Corps Civil
Works projects, nationwide. This is accomplished through recommendation of and assistance in the development of management actions, policy, research and information exchange. In addition, the SAT provides input to strategic planning and makes recommendations on national priorities for the Corps Environment- Stewardship business program.
Voting members of the Stewardship Advisory Team consist of representatives from Districts (four rotating representatives), Project Offices (four rotating representatives), and all Corps Divisions (eight permanent representatives). Rotating SAT members serve 4-year terms. Two non-voting members (the Program Manager and the Project Manager), represent HQUSACE and the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC). The SAT evaluates all proposals for funding within the SSP and recommends funding priorities to HQUSACE (CECW-ON). The Stewardship Advisory Team meets semi-annually, typically during the months of November and July. HQUSACE and ERDC participate in all team meetings. After the fall meeting each year, nominations of qualified individuals (to replace rotating-off members) are requested from the appropriate Division, by Headquarters. Individuals interested in becoming a member should:
- Review the terms of office of the current rotating positions.
- Contact current members for information on the SAT.
- Notify their supervisor of their interest.
