The renewal of the charter for this time period is critical to the success of NOAA.
Only one amendment was made to the charter.
Under Section 9, Estimated Number and Frequency of Meetings, language has been revised to state “The SAB will meet approximately three times each year in person if possible.” This reflects the need for the Board members to regularly gather together for their meetings but also allows room for those meetings to be fewer than three per year and virtual, if necessary. The SAB will continue to have ad hoc virtual meetings in between the in-person meetings as necessary.
