Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Under the Federal Advisory Committee Act, Pub. L. 92463, EPA gives notice of a meeting of the National Advisory Council for Environmental Policy and Technology (NACEPT). NACEPT provides advice and recommendations to the Administrator of EPA on a broad range of environmental policy, technology, and management issues.
NACEPT consists of a representative cross-section of EPA's partners and principle constituents who provide advice and recommendations on policy issues and serve as a sounding board for new strategies that the Agency is developing. The Council is a proactive, strategic panel of experts that identifies emerging challenges facing EPA and responds to specific charges requested by the Administrator and the program office managers.
The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the NACEPT Council agenda for FY 03-04 and agree on appropriate venues to address the topics in a timely and efficient manner. NACEPT will discuss a number of issues, including agriculture, environmental technology, EPA's draft strategic plan, EPA's Report on the Environment, and emerging trends facing the agency. In addition, NACEPT will report on the work of its subcommittees.
