If NMFS requires additional members to ensure a diverse pool of individuals to draw from for data or assessment workshops, NMFS may request individuals to be members of the SEDAR Pool outside of the annual nomination period. Panel members serve at the discretion of the Secretary. Not all members will attend each SEDAR workshop. Rather, NMFS will invite certain members to participate at specific stock assessment workshops dependent on their ability to participate, discuss, and recommend scientific decisions regarding the species being assessed. If an invited SEDAR Pool member is unable to attend the workshop, the member may send a designee who may represent them and participate in the activities of the workshop. In order to ensure the designee meets the requirements of participating in the data and/or assessment workshop, the designee must receive written approval of the Director of the Office of Sustainable Fisheries at least six weeks in advance of the beginning of the relevant data and/or assessment workshop. Written notification must include the name, address, telephone, e-mail, and position of the individual designated. A designee may not name another designee. NMFS is not obligated to fulfill any requests (e.g., requests for an assessment of a certain species) that may be made by the SEDAR Pool or its individual members. Members of the SEDAR Pool who are invited to attend stock assessment workshops may be reimbursed for their travel-related expenses to attend such workshops. B. Nomination Procedures for Appointments to the SEDAR Pool Member tenure will be for three years. Nominations are sought for terms beginning February 2010 and expiring January 2013. Nomination packages should include: 1. The name, address, phone number, and e-mail of the applicant or nominee; 2. A description of his/her interest in Atlantic shark stock assessments or the Atlantic shark fishery; 3. A statement of background and/or qualifications; and 4. A written commitment that the applicant or nominee shall participate actively and in good faith in the tasks of the SEDAR Pool, as requested. C.
