ACTION: Notice of appointment and reappointment. AGENCY: The National Environmental Education and Training Foundation (doing business as The National Environmental Education Foundation or ‘‘NEEF’’) was created as a private 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. It was established by Congress as a common ground upon which leaders from business and industry, all levels of government, public interest groups, and others can work cooperatively to raise a greater national awareness of environmental issues beyond traditional classrooms. Per NEEA, the EPA Administrator appoints and reappoints eligible individuals to serve on NEEF’s Board of Directors. The Administrator announces the following four-year appointments to NEEF’s Board of Directors, effective 90 days after publication of this notice: • Dr. Robert D. Bullard, Texas Southern University • Sally Cole, Apple • Omar Mitchell, National Hockey League • Arturo Garcia-Costas, New York Community Trust Mr. Kevin Coyle, Toyota will be reappointed for an additional four-year term. Additional considerations: As an independent foundation, NEEF is different from the Agency’s several federal advisory committees and scientific boards, which have their own appointment processes. Because NEEA gives complete discretion to the Administrator in appointing members to NEEF’s Board of Directors, EPA is taking additional steps to ensure all prospective members are qualified to serve on the Board and represent diverse points of view.
