SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background and Authority

    The Council is a non-discretionary committee authorized under WIOA 
with the purpose of advising the Secretary on the operation and 
administration of the WIOA Section 166 Indian and Native American 
Employment and Training programs. The Charter provides for the Council 
to consist of no less than 15 but no more than 20 members, appointed by 
the Secretary, who are representatives of Indian tribes, tribal 
organizations, Alaska Native entities, Indian-controlled organizations 
serving Indians, and Native Hawaiian organizations. Members of the 
Council shall serve at the pleasure of the Secretary for a two-year 
term designated by the Secretary and without compensation except that 
members shall be allowed travel expenses, including per diem, while 
away from their homes or regular places of business in the performance 
of services for the Council.

II. Structure

    Except as otherwise required by law, the Council membership will be 
consistent with the applicable Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA) 
regulations as follows: (a) Membership on the Council will be fairly 
balanced; (b) members will come from a cross-section of those directly 
affected, interested, and qualified as appropriate to the nature and 
functions of the Council; and (c) the composition of the Council 
depends upon several factors, including: (i) The Council's mission; 
(ii) the geographic, ethnic, social, economic, or scientific impact of 
the advisory committee's recommendations; (iii) the types of specific 
perspectives required; (iv) the need to obtain divergent points of view 
on the issues before the Council, such as those of consumers, technical 
experts, the public at-large, academia, business, or other sectors; and 
(v) the relevance of state, local, and tribal governments to the 
development of the Council's recommendations.
    Twelve appointments expired on May 11, 2018, and five expired on 
November 14, 2018. The Department is consolidating the nomination 
process for both appointment expiration dates in one announcement; 
however, the Council's two-year terms will remain the same. To the 
extent permitted by FACA and other laws, the Council membership should 
also be consistent with achieving the greatest impact, scope, and 
credibility among diverse stakeholders. The diversity in such 
membership includes but is not limited to: Race, gender, disability, 
sexual orientation, and gender identity.
