related to Environmental Management programs and specifically 
groundwater remediation, soil remediation, and adaptive management.
    Members are appointed for two-year terms. The Board typically meets

uncompensated, volunteer basis. However, committee members are paid 
authorized travel and per diem for each meeting that requires travel. 
Each nominee must submit their resume and biography along with any 
letters of support by the deadline above. All nominees will be vetted 
before selection.
    Nominations are open to all individuals without regard to race,
