Kearns & West Facilitates First West Coast Ocean Summit

The West Coast Ocean Summit brought together West Coast Tribes, Governors’ representatives from California, Oregon, and Washington and state and federal agencies to discuss regional ocean coordination and collaboration. Kearns & West provided process design and neutral facilitation support for the first-of-its-kind, two-day event. Kearns & West helped the more than 150 Summit participants with understanding common priorities, documenting issues of mutual importance, identifying opportunities for coordination and overcoming challenges, and developing ongoing dialogue among federal and state agencies and tribes in the region.
