The Secretary of the Treasury invites those individuals, organizations, and groups affiliated with employee plans, exempt organizations, tax-exempt bonds, and Federal, state, local or Indian tribal governments, to nominate individuals for membership on the ACT. Nominations should describe and document the proposed member’s qualifications for membership on the ACT. Nominations should also specify the vacancy for which they wish to be considered.

In accordance with Department of the Treasury Directive 21–03, the clearance process includes, among other things, preappointment and annual tax checks, and a Federal Bureau of Investigation criminal and subversive name check and security clearance.
