NIST Seeks New Members for Nine Advisory Committees

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is requesting nominations of qualified individuals for its nine existing federal advisory committees. Nominations for all committees will be accepted on an ongoing basis and will be considered as and when vacancies arise.

A July 27, 2010, Federal Register notice ("Request for nominations for members to serve on National Institute of Standards and Technology Federal Advisory Committees," Federal Register Vol. 75, No. 143, p. 43933) details each committee, including the number of members serving on the committee, its objectives and duties, the nomination procedure and committee contacts.

New to the list of NIST advisory committees this year is the NIST Smart Grid Advisory Committee. The Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) of 2007 charges NIST with primary responsibility to coordinate development of technical protocols and standards necessary for interoperability of smart grid devices and systems. This advisory committee provides guidance to the NIST Director on the overall direction, status and health of the Smart Grid implementation and identifies issues and needs. Input from the committee will be used to help guide Smart Grid Interoperability Panel activities and assist NIST in directing research and standards activities.

The other NIST advisory committees described in the Federal Register notice are: the Board of Overseers of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, the Judges Panel of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, the Information Security and Privacy Advisory Board, the Manufacturing Extension Partnership Advisory Board, the National Construction Safety Team Advisory Board, the Advisory Committee on Earthquake Hazards Reduction, the Technology Innovation Program Advisory Board, and the Visiting Committee on Advanced Technology.
