The Board is established under section 242 of the Workforce Investment Act of 1998, Pub. L. 105-220 (20 U.S.C. 9252). The Board consists of ten individuals appointed by the President with the advice and consent of the Senate. The Board advises and makes recommendations to the Interagency Group that administers the Institute. The Interagency Group is composed of the Secretaries of Education, Labor, and Health and Human Services. The Interagency Group considers the Board's recommendations in planning the goals of the Institute and in implementing any programs to achieve those goals. Specifically, the Board performs the following functions: (a) Makes recommendations concerning the appointment of the Director and the staff of the Institute; (b) provides independent advice on operation of the Institute; and (c) receives reports from the Interagency Group and the Institute's Director.

The National Institute for Literacy Advisory Board will meet November 2-3, 2005. On November 2, 2005 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. and from 3 p.m. to 6:15 p.m.; and November 3, 2005 from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., the Board will meet in open session to discuss the Institute's program priorities; status of on-going Institute work; and other Board business as necessary. On November 2, 2005 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m., the Board meeting will meet in closed session in order to discuss personnel issues. This discussion relates to the internal personnel rules and practices of the Institute and is likely to disclose information of personal nature where disclosure would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personnel privacy. The discussion must therefore be held in closed session under exemptions 2 and 6 of the Government in the Sunshine Act, 5 U.S.C. 552b (c) (2) and (6). A summary of the activities at the closed session and related matters that are informative to the public and consistent with the policy of 5 U.S.C. 552b will be available to the public within 14 days of the meeting.

The National Institute for Literacy Advisory Board meeting on November 2-3, 2005, will focus on future and current program activities, presentations by education researchers, and other relevant literacy activities and issues.
