Support Staff and Committees

Support Staff

The Board is supported by staff of the US and Canadian federal governments and the IJC. 

  • Secretaries
    The secretaries provide administrative and communication support to the Board, maintaining Board minutes, semi-annual reports and other records.
  • Regulation Representatives
    The regulation representatives provide engineering and technical support to the Board and advise on regulation operations by monitoring and maintaining records of hydrologic conditions, conducting regulation plan calculations, accounting for flow deviations, and ensuring outflows meet conditions and criteria outlined by the IJC and Board.
  • On-Site Representatives
    The on-site representatives oversee the operation of the control structures on the St. Marys River.
  • Engineering Advisors
    The IJC engineering advisors liaise between the IJC and the Board, and advise on the IJC’s Orders and directives.


  • Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Adaptive Management (GLAM) Committee
    The GLAM Committee reviews and evaluates the plans for regulating the outflows from Lake Superior and Lake Ontario in light of changing conditions and how water levels and flows affect socio-economic interests and the environment. The information assists the Boards with operations and helps the Boards determine whether changes to the regulation plans should be considered.
