Due to the unexpected cancellation of the original meeting space and the additional time required to make alternate arrangements, this notice could not be published at least 15 days prior to the meeting date. The National Park Service regrets this delay, but is compelled to hold the meeting as scheduled because of the significant sacrifice rescheduling would require of Board members who have adjusted their schedules to accommodate the proposed meeting date.
The Commission meeting is open to the public. Space and facilities to accommodate the public are limited and attendees will be accommodated on a first-come basis.
Assistance to Individuals With Disabilities at the Public Meeting
The meeting site is accessible to individuals with disabilities.

Attempts will be made to meet any request(s) we receive after that date, however we may not be able to make the requested auxiliary aid or service available because of insufficient time to arrange for it.
Anyone may file with the Commission a written statement concerning the establishment of the National Museum for African American History and Culture. The Commission may also permit attendees to address the assembled Commission, but may restrict the length of the presentations, as necessary to allow the Commission to complete its agenda within the allotted time.
