The Mid-Atlantic Regional Partnership Committee is established by action of the Board of Managers of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC). The purpose of the MARPC is to advise the ATC Regional Director, the region's Trail maintaining clubs, and the region's agencies, and to provide direct, two-way communication between the ATC regional office and the constituent clubs and agencies. The MARPC provides a formal structure for regularly scheduled meetings to facilitate collaborative planning, share experiences, and discuss common concerns among clubs, agencies and ATC staff. In addition, the MARPC will provide discussion forums for issues of Trailwide significance and provide input to the Stewardship Council, ATC committees, and the Board of Directors on those issues. As an advisory body the RPC will have no authority to set Conference policies or to control Trail maintaining club activities, but will be fully self-governing within the general guidelines for structure and function established by the Board.
