On 3 October 2007 a CECW-CO-N memorandum announced the formation of an Advisory Board to develop and administer a formal Community of Practice (CoP) that serves USACE Park Rangers. On 24 March 2008, a CECW-CO-N memorandum made initial board appointments and provided a draft charter. The original charter was adopted by the Advisory Board on 9 July 2008. The current charter was adopted in Feburary 2018.
The objective is to develop and administer a Community of Practice, and the goal is to provide for a unified and on-going support platform for the USACE Park Ranger. The purpose is to advance the technical and leadership skills of USACE Park Rangers and empower them to accomplish professional Park Ranger duties in an agency-of-choice work environment; to develop and implement a plan for Park Ranger program sustainability which ensures that the Park Ranger is appropriately positioned for the future; to develop and implement plans and tools to communicate with and educate others about the current roles of the Park Ranger; and to develop and implement a plan of action to address any barriers to internal or external recognition and support of expanding Park Ranger roles across all business lines.
