Dear Tribal Professional,
ITEP is soliciting applications for the national Tribal Waste and Response Steering Committee. The Steering Committee supports and guides the efforts of the Tribal Waste and Response Assistance Program, which is the result of a five year cooperative agreement between ITEP and EPA’s Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response (OSWER). Steering committee members serve two-year terms and meet four times a year (two in-person meetings and two via conference call). Additional information is available at the website below: http://www4.nau.edu/itep/waste/twrap.asp
This year we will be selecting up to five individuals to serve on the Steering Committee. The deadline for applications is June 22, 2012. Attached to this email you will find two documents. The first provides an overview of the duties and responsibilities of Steering Committee members and the second is the Steering Committee Application.
If you are interested in being considered for a position on the Steering Committee, please fill out the attached application and send it to Todd Barnell at firstname.lastname@example.org
or fax it to 928-523-1266. A selection team, composed of staff from ITEP, OSWER, USEPA Regional offices, and tribal programs, will review the applications and make final selections. Successful applicants will be notified of their selection in August 2012 and will officially join the Steering Committee in November 2012.
Please feel free to share this information with anyone who may be interested. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
