MRRIC has two types of work groups:
MRRIC Standing Work Groups: The Committee has established standing Work Groups which are indispensable for carrying out MRRIC's work. They allow Committee members to better understand the actions at hand.
- Groups work directly with the agencies to discuss key issues and develop recommendations to the MRRIC group at large on how the Missouri River Recovery Program can be as effective as possible while ensuring public values are incorporated into management actions.
- They meet by facilitated conference calls and occasional in-person meetings.
MRRIC Ad Hoc Groups: The Committee has also established Ad Hoc Work Groups. These groups are formed to address a specific issue; upon completion of their work, the ad hoc work group may disband.
Each of the specific groups are listed below. Please see the MRRIC Annual Reports for details of what each group has worked for a particular year.
