SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice of this meeting is given under the 
Federal Advisory Committee Act, 5 U.S.C. App. (Pub. L. 92-463). The 
National Advisory Council (NAC) advises the Administrator of the 
Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) on all aspects of emergency 
management. The NAC incorporates State, local, and Tribal governments, 
and private sector partners' input in the development and revision of 
FEMA policies and strategies. FEMA's Office of the NAC serves as the 
focal point for all NAC coordination.
    Agenda: The FEMA National Advisory Council will be meeting by 
teleconference to discuss the National Exercise Program (NEP) two-year 
cycle 2013-1014. The Council will discuss potential recommendations on 
the General Objectives for inclusion in the NEP two-year cycle. The 
Council will use the specific priorities from the Principal Objectives 
as guidelines to develop their recommendations for General Objectives. 
FEMA's National Exercise Division (NED) is responsible for providing 
exercise guidance and planning support to the Nation's emergency 
preparedness community. NED works through well-established and 
expanding partnerships within all levels of government, the private 
sector, and international communities. Exercise support is administered 
through the NEP. Information regarding the NEP, the Principal 
Objectives, and General Objectives can be found in the relative 
sections at: http://www.fema.gov/national-exercise-program.
    The Federal Advisory Committee Act requires that notices of 
meetings of advisory committees be announced in the Federal Register 15 
days prior to the meeting date. This notice of a teleconference of the 
NAC is published less than 15 days prior to the teleconference due to 
closure of Federal government offices during Hurricane Sandy. Since the 
NAC is meeting via teleconference, there will not be an undue burden on 
the public to arrange travel to attend this meeting. Notice of this 
meeting is also provided on the NAC's Web site at http://www.fema.gov/national-advisory-council.

W. Craig Fugate,
Administrator, Federal Emergency Management Agency.
