Request for Nominations to the National Advisory Council for 
Environmental Policy and Technology (NACEPT)

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice of request for nominations.


SUMMARY: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency invites nominations 
to fill vacancies on its National Advisory Council for Environmental 
Policy and Technology (NACEPT). The Agency seeks qualified senior-level 
decision makers from diverse sectors throughout the United States to be 
considered for appointments. EPA encourages interested applicants to 
send their resumes and qualifications as soon as possible. Additional 
avenues and resources may be utilized in the solicitation of nominees.

ADDRESSES: Submit nominations to: Ms. Sonia Altieri, Designated Federal 
Officer, Office of Cooperative Environmental Management, U.S. 
Environmental Protection Agency (1601E), 1200 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW., 
Washington, DC 20460.
    Background: NACEPT is a Federal advisory committee under the 
Federal Advisory Committee Act, Public Law 92463. The U.S. 
Environmental Protection Agency established NACEPT in 1988 to provide 
independent advice to the EPA Administrator on a broad range of 
environmental policy, technology and management issues. NACEPT consists 
of a representative cross-section of EPA's partners, stakeholders, and 
constituents who provide timely advice and recommendations on 
environmental issues, and serve as a sounding board for new strategies 
that EPA is developing.
    We anticipate the Council addressing issues related to 
environmental technology, environmental foresight,

[[Page 75310]]

and collaborative approaches to environmental problems. NACEPT will 
provide advice in a timely manner and operate as a proactive and 
strategic body that will alert EPA to potential environmental 
challenges and issues that could impact the Agency's ability to protect 
public health and the environment, and options to address them.
    Members are appointed by the Administrator of EPA for two year 
terms with the possibility of reappointment. The Council usually meets 
3-4 times annually and the average workload for the members is 
approximately 10 to 15 hours per month. Members serve on the Council in 
a voluntary capacity; however, EPA does provide reimbursement for 
travel expenses associated with official government business.
    Potential candidates should possess the following qualifications:
    Occupy a senior position within their organization.
    Broad experience outside of their current position.
    Experience dealing with public policy issues.
    Membership in broad-based networks.
    Extensive experience in the environmental field.
    Recognized expert in the subject matter to be addressed by NACEPT.
    EPA is seeking nominees for representation from all sectors, in 
particular federal, state, local and tribal agencies, academia, 
industry, environmental justice, and non-governmental organizations. 
Nominations for membership must include a resume and short biography 
describing the educational and professional qualifications of the 
nominee and the nominee's current business address and daytime 
telephone number.
