FCC Seeks Nominations for Tribal Official Intergovernmental Advisory Committee Slot


The Federal Communications Commission (FCC or Commission) is seeking nominations for an open position for an elected or appointed Tribal representative to serve on the Commission’s Intergovernmental Advisory Committee (IAC). Nominees for the IAC Tribal membership position must submit their applications via email to iac@fcc.gov or via hardcopy through the mail.  Applications are due April 10, 2015.

The FCC’s IAC was created to advise the FCC on telecommunications issues that affect local, state and Tribal governments but are within the jurisdiction of the FCC, such as broadband deployment and adoption, public safety communications, facilities siting, universal service reform, and public rights-of-way.  Pursuant to the FCC’s rules, the IAC is composed of the following 15 members: four elected municipal officials (city mayors and city council members); two elected county officials (county commissioners or council members); one elected or appointed local government attorney; one elected state executive (governor or lieutenant governor); three elected state legislators; one elected or appointed public utilities or public service commissioner; and three elected or appointed Native American tribal representatives.
