Further to the NASA Federal Register notice of December 12, 2017 (see citation above), NASA announces an invitation for public nominations of U.S. citizens to serve as potential members of the National Space Council Users' Advisory Group (UAG). The UAG is a new Federal advisory committee under the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA) being established pursuant to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration Authorization Act, Fiscal Year 1991 (Pub. L. 101-611, Section 121) and Executive Order 13803, Section 6 (``Reviving the National Space Council'') signed by the President on June 30, 2017. The UAG is purely advisory and will ensure that the interests of industry and other non-Federal entities are adequately represented in the deliberations of the National Space Council. NASA is sponsoring the UAG on behalf of the National Space Council, an Executive Branch interagency coordinating committee chaired by the Vice President, which is tasked with advising and assisting the President on national space policy and strategy. Members of the UAG will serve either as ``Representatives'' (representing industry, other non-Federal entities, and other recognizable groups of persons involved in aeronautical and space activities), or as ``Special Government Employees'' (individual subject matter experts or consultants). Deadline: The deadline for NASA to receive all public nominations is January 10, 2018. Instructions for Public Nominations: U.S. citizens or organizations may nominate individuals for consideration as potential members of the UAG. Interested candidates may also self-nominate. The candidate must be a U.S. citizen, may not be a regular government employee, and must not be registered by the Department of Justice under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), 22 U.S.C. 611 et seq. Additionally, a candidate for a Special Government Employee appointment must not be federally registered as a lobbyist under the Lobbying Disclosure Act of 1995, 2 U.S.C. 1602, as amended. Nominations must be contained in an email to NASA attaching the required documents. All nominations should include a cover letter, a resume (including contact information for the individual) and a professional biography demonstrating professional stature, knowledge and experience commensurate with achieving the UAG's purpose as set forth in Public Law 101-611, Section 121. Each document must not exceed one page. The cover letter must be a signed letter saved as a PDF file, indicate the category of membership for which the individual is being nominated (``Representative'' or ``Special Government Employee''), and contain an affirmative statement that the individual meets all aforesaid requirements. Cover letters for Representative nominations must also indicate why the individual should be considered for membership relative to the UAG's representational objectives, and be on the supporting organization's letterhead. Cover letters for Special Government Employee nominations must also identify the subject area(s) where the individual's expertise and/or consultative stature is nationally recognized relative to the UAG's advisory objectives. Nominations must be submitted in a single email attaching the cover letter, resume, and professional biography to HQ-UAGnoms@nasa.gov. Hard copies such as paper documents sent through postal mail will not be accepted.

App., as amended; 5 U.S.C. 3109; Title V of Public Law 100-685; Public Law 101-611, Section 121; Executive Order 13803 of June 30, 2017, Section 6; and 44 U.S.C. 3101.
