SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The CACs on the African American Population, the American Indian and Alaska Native Populations, the Asian Population, the Hispanic Population, and the Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander Populations are comprised of nine members each. The Secretary of Commerce appoints the members. The Committees provide an organized and continuing channel of communication between the representative communities and the Census Bureau. The Committee provides an outside user perspective about how research and design plans for the 2010 decennial census, and the development of the American Community Survey and other related programs, will realize decennial census goals and satisfy their representative community needs. They assist the Census Bureau in determining ways that census data can best be disseminated to their communities and other users.

All meetings are open to the public, and a brief period will be set aside on June 20 for public comment and questions. Individuals with extensive questions or statements must submit them in writing to the Committee Liaison Officer, named above, at least three days before the meeting. Seating is available to the public on a first-come, first-serve basis.
