The CFS Advisory Committee meeting is less than a month away: December 10th and 11th. To help you prepare, I’ve collected basic information about the meeting. I’ll be posting more about what to watch for in the meeting soon.

  • The draft agenda for the meeting has been posted.
  • This meeting will be conducted by webinar, and information about how that will work has been posted.
  • To watch the meeting, you will have to register. The registration link is not live yet.  The registration link is LIVE.
  • To offer public comment, you will have to register. The registration link is not live yet. The deadline for registration is November 29th, and pre-recorded video WILL be accepted. For more information, see this description of the rules. Use the meeting registration link to sign up for public comment BUT there is presently an error in the system. When you register and request public comment, you may see an error requiring you to attach your comments. I created a place holder document and attached it, and then emailed to let the contractor know my final comments will be submitted by the deadline, and asking that they correct the error in the meantime.
  • The Committee will add a new member at this meeting: Dr. Gary Kaplan.

Look for more CFSAC coverage as the meeting approaches.

    Thanks so much for this information. I’m really looking forward to being a part of this. What is the process to decide what public comment gets accepted in the few minutes allotted for it?

    It’s good to see the IoM study is on the agenda. That should be an interesting 30 minutes!

      People who want a comment slot indicate that when they register. If there are more requests than slots, the staff selects who will get slots and preference is given to those who have not commented in the last year. Everyone is notified about their slots by December 4th. If you want your comment to be in the public record on the CFSAC website, though, you have to submit it by November 29th.

    @Jennie Spotila
    Thanks again, perhaps I’ll be brave (and coherent) enough to participate. I think I’ll spend some time watching past meetings as I see they are all on YouTube. Technology these days is amazing.
