The charter has evolved since the SAB's inception in 1997 so as to accurately describe the SAB's purpose, membership, and administrative provisions. To more fully align the charter with the current state of the SAB and NOAA, the renewal charter has been modified as follows: (1) The term of the Chairperson has been specified to be until the end of the selected member's term on the SAB. (2) Members whose terms on the SAB have expired may remain on at the specific request of the Under Secretary for a period of time not to exceed one year beyond the original end date of the final term. (3) Members of the SAB's task forces and working groups shall be appointed by the Under Secretary or his designee in accordance with applicable Department of Commerce appointment procedures for members of advisory committees.
