We welcome new partners to join us. The partnership of the OCCP and SOSCP is composed of organizations with a focus on conservation in the Okanagan Basin. Representatives of partner organizations can be involved in many ways from participating in Action teams to joining the Steering Committee.
OCCP Partners roles and responsibilities:
Most organizations in the OCCP are signatory partners who have committed to the OCCP Statement of Co-operation and offer a minimum of 30 hours of staff time to the OCCP per year. Not all partners are signatory members however, and their role depends on the terms of partnership and nature of their organization.
Partners must designate representatives to fulfill the responsibilities of collaborating within the OCCP, including:
- To understand and uphold any signed agreements such as the OCCP Statement of Co-operation, contribution agreements or contracts, or other agreements.
- To understand and seek clarification of the OCCP Strategic Plan.
- To periodically update OCCP members of pertinent information at meetings, events, and media.
- To participate in the OCCP through Action Teams, Steering Committee, joint projects, events, meetings, and media.
- To identify and share resources with partners, when appropriate.
- To provide feedback on OCCP plans, projects, function, and services.
- To recommend service providers and potential new partners.
