Expanding the scope of entities eligible for representation on the Council is expected to enhance the recommendations and advice received from the Council, particularly with respect to the Council’s duty to provide recommendations on ‘‘ways to ensure that the United States remains the preeminent destination for investment in manufacturing throughout the world’’ as provided for in Section 4 of the current Council charter. Because U.S. manufacturers that are subsidiaries of foreign companies are not currently represented on the Council, applicants requesting to represent such entities are particularly encouraged to apply. However, all eligible applicants will be considered to fill the five vacant positions. Members will be selected, in accordance with applicable Department of Commerce guidelines, based on each individual’s ability to advise the Secretary of Commerce on matters relating to the U.S. manufacturing sector, to act as a liaison among the stakeholders represented by the membership and to represent the viewpoint of those stakeholders on current and emerging issues in the manufacturing sector. In assessing this ability, the Department will consider such factors as, but not limited to, 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 industry sectors. The Council’s membership shall reflect 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 mediumsized enterprises. The Secretary of Commerce appoints all Council members. All Council members serve at the discretion of the Secretary of Commerce. Council members shall serve in a representative capacity, representing the views and interests of a U.S. entity in the manufacturing industry and its particular sector.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Office of Advisory Committees is 
accepting applications from representatives of the U.S. manufacturing 
industry for five vacant positions on the Council for the current 
member appointment terms that run through November 30, 2014. The 
Council was rechartered most recently on April 5, 2012. For the 
remainder of the current charter term, the Department is expanding the 
scope of entities eligible for representation on the Council to include 
U.S. businesses in the manufacturing industry that are controlled 
directly or indirectly by a foreign parent company (i.e., U.S. 
subsidiaries of foreign companies).
    The Department previously had limited eligibility to U.S. entities 
incorporated in the United States (or an unincorporated firm with its 
principal place of business in the United States) that are controlled 
by U.S. citizens or another U.S. entity, as determined by direct or 
indirect control of the entity's stock or ownership interests. The 
Department is expanding the eligibility criteria for the remainder of 
this charter term to allow for appointment to the Council of 
representatives of U.S. businesses that are controlled directly or 
indirectly by foreign companies. U.S. businesses that are controlled 
directly or indirectly by foreign companies play an important role in 
the U.S. economy, including in the U.S. manufacturing

sector. Expanding the scope of entities eligible for representation on 
the Council is expected to enhance the recommendations and advice 
received from the Council, particularly with respect to the Council's 
duty to provide recommendations on ``ways to ensure that the United 
States remains the preeminent destination for investment in 
manufacturing throughout the world'' as provided for in Section 4 of 
the current Council charter.
    Because U.S. manufacturers that are subsidiaries of foreign 
companies are not currently represented on the Council, applicants 
requesting to represent such entities are particularly encouraged to 
apply. However, all eligible applicants will be considered to fill the 
five vacant positions.
    Members will be selected, in accordance with applicable Department 
of Commerce guidelines, based on each individual's ability to advise 
the Secretary of Commerce on matters relating to the U.S. manufacturing 
sector, to act as a liaison among the stakeholders represented by the 
membership and to represent the viewpoint of those stakeholders on 
current and emerging issues in the manufacturing sector. In assessing 
this ability, the Department will consider such factors as, but not 
limited to, 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 industry sectors. The 
Council's membership shall reflect 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.
    The Secretary of Commerce appoints all Council members. All Council 
members serve at the discretion of the Secretary of Commerce. Council 
members shall serve in a representative capacity, representing the 
views and interests of a U.S. entity in the manufacturing industry and 
its particular sector. For the purposes of eligibility, a U.S. entity 
is defined as a firm incorporated in the United States or with its 
principal place of business in the United States that is (a) majority 
controlled (more than 50% ownership interest and/or voting stock) by 
U.S. citizens or by another U.S. entity or (b) majority controlled 
(more than 50% ownership interest and/or voting stock) directly or 
indirectly by a foreign parent company.
    As noted above, Council members serve in a representative capacity, 
expressing the views and interests of a U.S. entity; they are, 
therefore, not Special Government Employees. Council members receive no 
compensation for their participation in Council activities. Members 
participating in Council meetings and events are responsible for their 
travel, living and other personal expenses. Meetings are held regularly 
and not less than annually, usually in Washington, DC. Members are 
required to attend a majority of the Council's meetings.
    To be considered for membership, please provide the following:

letterhead or, if the applicant is to represent an entity other than

the applicant's manufacturing-related experience, including any 
manufacturing trade policy experience.

eligibility criteria.
