SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The EEMAC was established to conduct public meetings; submit reports and recommendations to the Commission; and otherwise serve as a vehicle for discussion and communication on matters of concern to exchanges, trading firms, end users, energy producers, and regulators regarding energy and environmental markets and their regulation by the Commission. I. Request for Associate Member Nominations Pursuant to the EEMAC’s authorizing statute, the EEMAC must have nine members. In addition, the EEMAC Charter requires that the Committee have approximately 9–20 Associate Members. The EEMAC currently has fourteen Associate Members and Commissioner Dan M. Berkovitz, the EEMAC’s Sponsor, seeks additional Associate Members of the EEMAC. Accordingly, the Commission invites the submission of nominations for EEMAC Associate Members who represent a wide diversity of opinions and a broad spectrum of interests related to the energy and environmental markets and their regulation by the Commission. To advise the Commission effectively, EEMAC Associate Members must have a high level of expertise and experience in the energy and/or environmental markets and the Commission’s regulation of such markets, including from a historical perspective. To the extent practicable, the Commission will strive to select members reflecting wide ethnic, racial, gender, and age representation. All EEMAC Associate Members must be willing to participate in a public forum. Each nomination submission should include relevant information about the proposed Associate Member, such as the VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:09 Aug 23, 2019 Jkt 247001 individual’s name, title, organizational affiliation and address, email address and telephone number, as well as information that supports the individual’s qualifications to serve as an Associate Member of the EEMAC. The submission should also include the name, email address, and telephone number of the person nominating the proposed Associate Member. Selfnominations are acceptable. Submission of a nomination is not a guarantee of selection as an Associate Member of the EEMAC. As noted in the EEMAC’s Charter, the CFTC identifies Associate Members of the EEMAC based on Commissioners’ and Commission staff’s knowledge of the energy and environmental markets, consultation with knowledgeable persons outside the CFTC, and requests to be Associate Members received from individuals and organizations. The Office of Commissioner Berkovitz plays a primary, but not exclusive, role in this process and makes recommendations regarding Associate Members to the Commission. Associate Members may be appointed as representatives, special government employees, or regular government employees. Associate Members serve at the pleasure of the Commission, and may be appointed to serve for one, two, or three-year terms. As required by the EEMAC Charter, Associate Members provide their reports and recommendations directly to the EEMAC and not the Commission. Associate Members do not have the right to vote on matters before the EEMAC and may not sign or otherwise formally approve reports or recommendations made by the EEMAC to the Commission. Associate Members do not receive compensation for their services, and are not reimbursed for travel and per diem expenses. The EEMAC meets at such intervals as are necessary to carry out its functions and must meet at least two times per year. Associate Members are expected to provide their advice and recommendations to EEMAC members during these meetings. II. Request for Future EEMAC Meeting Topics In addition, the Commission invites submissions from the public regarding the topics on which EEMAC should focus. Such topics should: A.
