The ASF is an option for grantees for the establishment or reorganization of zones and can permit significantly greater flexibility in the designation of new subzones or ‘‘usagedriven’’ FTZ sites for operators/users located within a grantee’s ‘‘service area’’ in the context of the FTZ Board’s standard 2,000-acre activation limit for a zone. The application was submitted pursuant to the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a–81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR part 400). It was formally docketed on May 26, 2021. FTZ 249 was approved by the FTZ Board on May 23, 2001 (Board Order 1167, 66 FR 30408, June 6, 2001. The current zone includes the following sites: Site 1 (40 acres)—Port of Pensacola, 700 S. Barracks Street, Pensacola; Site 2 (1,400 acres)— Pensacola Regional Airport Complex, 2430 Airport Boulevard, Pensacola; Site 3 (70 acres)—Pensacola Shipyard VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:49 Jun 01, 2021 Jkt 253001 Marine Complex, 700 South Myrick Street, Pensacola; Site 4 (10 acres)—FDC Industrial Warehouse, 10 Spruce Street, Pensacola; and, Site 5 (140 acres)— Century Industrial Park, Escambia County Road 4 and Industrial Boulevard, Century. The grantee’s proposed service area under the ASF would be Escambia, Okaloosa and Santa Rosa Counties, Florida, as described in the application. If approved, the grantee would be able to serve sites throughout the service area based on companies’ needs for FTZ designation. The application indicates that the proposed service area is within and adjacent to the Pensacola U.S. Customs and Border Protection port of entry. The applicant is requesting authority to reorganize its existing zone to include Sites 1, 2, 3 and 5 as ‘‘magnet’’ sites and that Site 4 be removed. The ASF allows for the possible exemption of one magnet site from the ‘‘sunset’’ time limits that generally apply to sites under the ASF, and the applicant proposes that Site 1 be so exempted. The applicant is also requesting approval of the following ‘‘usage-driven’’ sites for SnackCrate, Inc.: Site 6 (1 acre)—201 East Wright Street, Pensacola; Site 7 (1 acre)—3330 Bill Metzger Lane, Pensacola; and, Site 8 (1 acre)—3867 Palafox Street, Pensacola. The application would have no impact on FTZ 249’s previously authorized subzone. In accordance with the FTZ Board’s regulations, Christopher Kemp of the FTZ Staff is designated examiner to evaluate and analyze the facts and information presented in the application and case record and to report findings and recommendations to the FTZ Board. Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions shall be addressed to the FTZ Board’s Executive Secretary and sent to: ftz@trade.gov. The closing period for their receipt is August 2, 2021. Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted during the foregoing period may be submitted during the subsequent 15-day period to August 16, 2021. A copy of the application will be available for public inspection in the ‘‘Reading Room’’ section of the FTZ Board’s website, which is accessible via www.trade.gov/ftz. For further information, contact Christopher Kemp at Christopher.Kemp@trade.gov. Dated: May 26, 2021. Elizabeth Whiteman, Acting Executive Secretary.

ACTION: Notice of opportunity for appointment to serve as a District Export Council member. AGENCY: The Department of Commerce is currently seeking nominations of individuals for consideration for appointment by the Secretary of Commerce to serve as members of one of the 61 District Export Councils (DECs) nationwide. DECs are closely affiliated with the U.S. Export Assistance Centers (USEACs) of the U.S. and Foreign Commercial Service (US&FCS), which is part of the Global Markets unit within the International Trade Administration, and play a key role in the planning and coordination of export activities in their communities. DATES: Nominations for individuals to a DEC must be received by the local USEAC Director by 5:00 p.m. local time on July 31, 2021. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Please contact the Director of your local USEAC for more information on DECs and the nomination process. You may identify your local USEAC by entering your zip code online at http:// export.gov/usoffices/index.asp. For general program information, contact jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:49 Jun 01, 2021 Jkt 253001 Laura Barmby, National DEC Liaison, US&FCS, at (202) 482–2675. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: District Export Councils support the mission of US&FCS by facilitating the development of an effective local export assistance network, supporting the expansion of export opportunities for local U.S. companies, serving as a communication link between the business community and US&FCS, and assisting in coordinating the activities of trade assistance partners to leverage available resources. Individuals appointed to a DEC become part of a select corps of trade professionals dedicated to providing international trade leadership and guidance to the local business community and assistance to the Department of Commerce on export development issues. DEC members are volunteers. DEC members are not special government employees. DEC members receive no compensation for their participation in DEC activities or reimbursement for travel and other personal expenses. Nomination Process: Each DEC has a maximum membership of 35. Approximately half of the positions are open on each DEC for the four-year term that begins on January 1, 2022 and runs through December 31, 2025. All potential nominees must complete an online nomination form and consent to sharing of the information on that form with the DEC Executive Committee for its consideration, and consent, if appointed, to sharing of their contact information with other DEC members and relevant government agencies and private sector organizations with a focus on trade. Interested individuals are highly encouraged to reach out to the local USEAC Director to learn more about the DECs and to begin the application process as soon as possible. While interested individuals can submit applications prior to July 1, 2021, USEAC Directors will formally accept nominations from July 1 until July 31, 2021. Eligibility and Appointment Criteria: Appointment is based upon an individual’s international trade leadership in the local community, ability to influence the local environment for exporting, knowledge of day-to-day international operations, interest in export development, and willingness and ability to devote time to DEC activities. Members must be employed as exporters or export service providers or in a profession which supports U.S. export promotion efforts. Members include exporters, export service providers and others whose profession supports U.S. export PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 29561 promotion efforts. DEC member appointments are made without regard to political affiliation. DEC membership is open to U.S. citizens and permanent residents of the United States. As representatives of the local exporting community, DEC Members must reside in, or conduct the majority of their work in, the territory that the DEC covers. DEC membership is not open to federal government employees. Individuals representing foreign governments, including individuals registered with the Department of Justice under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, must disclose such representation and may be disqualified if the Department determines that such representation is likely to impact the ability to carry out the duties of a DEC member or raise an appearance issue for the Department. Selection Process: Nominations of individuals who have applied for DEC membership will be forwarded to the local USEAC Director for the respective DEC for that Director’s consideration. The local USEAC Director ensures that all nominees meet the membership criteria. The local USEAC Director then, in consultation with the local DEC Executive Committee, evaluates all nominations to determine their interest, commitment, and qualifications. In reviewing nominations, the local USEAC Director strives to ensure a balance among exporters from a manufacturing or service industry and export service providers. A fair representation should be considered from companies and organizations that support exporters, representatives of local and state government, and trade organizations and associations. Membership should reflect the diversity of the local business community, encompass a broad range of businesses and industry sectors, and be distributed geographically across the DEC service area. For current DEC members seeking reappointment, the local USEAC Director, in consultation with the DEC Executive Committee, also carefully considers the nominee’s activity level during the previous term and demonstrated ability to work cooperatively and effectively with other DEC members and US&FCS staff. As appointees of the Secretary of Commerce in high-profile positions, though volunteers, DEC Members are expected to actively participate in the DEC and support the work of local US&FCS offices. Those that do not support the work of the office or do not actively participate in DEC activities will not be considered for renomination. E:\FR\FM\02JNN1.SGM 02JNN1
