The Council’s membership reflects the diversity of American manufacturing by representing a balanced cross-section of the U.S. manufacturing industry in terms of industry sectors, geographic locations, demographics, and company size, particularly seeking the representation of small- and medium-sized enterprises. Although applications from any manufacturing sector will be considered, based on the diversity of the manufacturing industry currently represented on the Council for this charter term, the Department particularly is encouraging applicants from the high-tech or bio-tech manufacturing sectors. Additional factors which may be considered in the selection of this Council member include the candidate’s proven experience in promoting, developing and marketing programs in support of manufacturing industries, job creation in the manufacturing sector, or the candidate’s proven abilities to manage manufacturing organizations. Given the duties and objectives of the Council, the Department particularly seeks applicants who are active manufacturing executives (Chief Executive Officer, President, or a comparable level of responsibility) that are leaders within their local manufacturing communities and industries. Each Council member serves as the representative of a U.S. entity in the manufacturing sector. For the purposes of eligibility, a U.S. entity is defined as a firm incorporated in the United States (or an unincorporated firm with its principal place of business in the United States) that is controlled by U.S. citizens or by another U.S. entity. An entity is not a U.S. entity if 50 percent plus one share of its stock (if a corporation, or a similar ownership interest of an unincorporated entity) is controlled, directly or indirectly, by non-U.S. citizens or non-U.S. entities. The appointment to the Council will be made by the Secretary of Commerce. All Council members serve at the discretion of the Secretary of Commerce. Council members serve in a representative capacity, representing the views and interests of their particular industry sector. Council members are not special government employees. Council members receive no compensation for their participation in Council activities. Members participating in Council meetings and E:\FR\FM\21DEN1.SGM 21DEN1
