History

The structure of APNEP's Policy Board was most recently restructured and reauthorized through Governor's Executive Order #133 (2012). From 2005 to 2012, APNEP's Policy Board was sanctioned in Governor's Executive Order #74 (2005) and Governor's Executive Order #122 (2007). Prior to 2005, APNEP was supported by five River Basin Advisory Councils, and members of these councils helped form the initial APNEP advisory committees and policy board.
