On April 8, 2009, the Commission issued a public notice soliciting nominations for the Technical Advisory Council (TAC) and nominations were received in response to this notice. Concurrent with the establishment of the TAC, the Commission was charged by Congress to develop a plan that seeks to ensure that people of the United States have access to broadband capability. In support of this and related efforts, the Commission is now seeking additional nominations to the TAC to ensure that its membership best serves the needs of the Commission.
The Commission will accept nominations for the Council through September 30, 2009. Nominations previously submitted remain in consideration. The Commission, at its discretion, may consider nominations received after this date, but consideration of late submissions is not guaranteed. Individuals may apply for, or nominate another individual for, membership on the Council. Each nomination or application must include:
a. the name and title of the applicant or nominee and a description of the interest the applicant or nominee will represent;
b. the applicant's or nominee's mail address, e-mail address, telephone number, and facsimile number (where available);
c. reasons why the applicant or nominee should be appointed to the Council; and
d. the basis for determining the applicant or nominee has achieved peer recognition as a technical expert.
Further details on the TAC are provided in the April 8, 2009, public notice available at http://hraunfoss.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/DA-09-796A1.doc
