Stakeholder Groups

NDEP Stakeholder Groups are comprised of representatives of organizations and/or individuals who share mutual interests and goals with NDEP and have capacity to identify and address the needs of high-risk and other priority populations. They are regularly informed about NDEP’s activities and provide input and feedback to NDEP. Activities may include:

  • Working with NDEP, with each other, and with other Stakeholder Groups to ensure that the needs and priorities of high-risk populations and/or major Stakeholder Groups are addressed in NDEP’s plans and initiatives.
  • Sharing information and providing input on an ongoing basis to the Executive Committee and relevant Task Groups to ensure that NDEP messages, materials, and initiatives are audience-appropriate and culturally-sensitive.
  • Reviewing proposed strategies, messages, materials, and tools in development by NDEP staff and Task Groups.
  • Reviewing messages and materials in development by staff and Task Groups.
  • Recommending nominees for participation on Task Groups.
  • Serving on relevant Task Groups.
  • Assisting NDEP in identifying and engaging new partners to ensure a wide diversity of traditional and non-traditional partners.
  • Collaborating with NDEP to ensure greater reach to high-risk and other priority populations.
