SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Committee considers the goals of Census 
2000 and user needs for information provided by that census, and 
provides an outside user perspective about how operational planning and 
implementation methods proposed for Census 2000 will realize those 
goals and satisfy those needs. The 2000 Census Advisory Committee 
provides an opportunity for an open process that informs and welcomes 
public comment about all aspects of Census 2000. The Committee provides 
a targeted review focused on the conduct of Census 2000.
    The 2000 Census Advisory Committee functions solely as an advisory 
body and complies fully with the provisions of the Federal Advisory 
Committee Act. The Committee consists of a Chair, Vice Chair, and a 
designated representative from each member organization. The Committee 
is composed of up to forty (40) member organizations. Sixteen (16) ex-
officio members are invited to serve in a nonvoting capacity. Ex-
officio members are representatives of the Postmaster General, the 
Chairperson and Ranking Members of the Census Oversight and 
Appropriations Committees and Subcommittees. The Census Advisory 
Committees on the African American Population, the American Indian and 
Alaska Native Populations, the Asian and Pacific Islander Populations, 
and the Hispanic Population designate one member, as a representative 
of those four committees, to serve as an ex-officio member. Also, the 
Committee may include up to four additional nonorganizational members 
that are appointed by, and serve at the pleasure of, the Secretary.
    The Designated Federal Official for the Advisory Committee is the 
Principal Associate Director for Programs at the Bureau of the Census, 
reporting through the Under Secretary of Economic Affairs, to the 
Secretary of Commerce.
    The Department of Commerce will file copies of the Committee's 
renewal charter with appropriate committees in Congress.
