At the AusSeabed workshop in July of 2018 it was decided that a Steering Committee should lead the vision and work-programme of the AusSeabed initiative. The development of a terms-of-reference by which to guide the committee was also actioned and delegated to a group of volunteers. To ensure continuity the Steering committee would have three standing memberships for GA, AHO and MNF as overarching founding members and a collection of representatives from the State agencies, universities and Industry sectors. The terms of reference can be downloaded here.
