The Council was established by section 3092(a)(6) of Public Law 113-291, and in accordance with the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act (5 U.S.C. Appendix 1-16). The purpose of the Council is to provide the Secretary of the Interior (Secretary) and NPS guidance for the management of the Monument.

The Council is composed of 10 members, appointed by the Secretary to 3-year terms, and consists of the following members: One representative of the County Commission; one representative appointed by the city council of Las Vegas, Nevada; one representative appointed by the city council of North Las Vegas, Nevada; one member appointed by the tribal council of the Las Vegas Paiute Tribe; one representative of the conservation community in southern Nevada; one representative of Nellis Air Force Base; one member who resides in the County and has a background that reflects the purpose for which the Monument was established; and two members who reside in the County or adjacent counties, both of whom shall have experience in the field of paleontology, obtained through higher education, experience, or both.

We are currently seeking members in all categories. Nominations should be typed and should include a resume providing an adequate description of the nominee's qualifications, including information that would enable the Department of the Interior to make an informed decision regarding meeting the membership requirements of the Council and permit the Department to contact a potential member. All documentation, including letters of recommendation, must be compiled and submitted in one complete package. All those interested in membership, including current members whose terms are expiring, must follow the same nomination process. Members may not appoint deputies or alternates.

Members of the Council serve without compensation. However, while away from their homes or regular places of business in the performance of services for the Council as approved by the Designated Federal Officer, members may be allowed travel expenses, including per diem in lieu of subsistence, in the same manner as persons employed intermittently in Government service are allowed such expenses under section 5703 of Title 5 of the United States Code.
