Background: NACEPT is a federal advisory committee under the Federal Advisory Committee Act, Pub. L. 92463.

NACEPT consists of a representative cross-section of EPA's partners and principle constituents who provide advice and recommendations on policy issues and serves as a sounding board for new strategies that the Agency is developing. The Administrator of EPA has asked NACEPT to act as a visionary group by periodically identifying emerging trends and issues that could impact the EPA's ability to protect public health and the environment. To address this charge, a subset of the NACEPT Council organized into an Emerging Trends and Issues Workgroup.
Purpose of Meeting: The NACEPT Council will review and comment on the Emerging Trends and Issues Workgroup's draft report which analyses environmental challenges over the next 5-10 years. The Council will comment on the draft report and begin to prioritize opportunities for EPA.
