The LFN SPC was approved on May 15, 2019 as a committee of the Governing Board.  The SPC has the dual role of helping to set the strategy for LFN portfolio of projects as a whole and providing Projects visibility into the directions of the Governing Board. As with all GB committees the SPC only provides recommendations and guidance to the Governing Board.  It is the GB that has the ultimate decision making authority regarding those recommendations.
