FCC Seeks Nominations for Communications Security, Reliability, and Interoperability Council Due - March 31, 2015

The FCC is seeking nominations for membership on the re-chartered fifth Communications Security, Reliability, and Interoperability Council (CSRIC) which is a FACA federal advisory committee chartered to provide the FCC with guidance, expertise and recommendations to improve the security, reliability, and interoperability of the nation's communications systems.  In its previous charter, CSRIC included two steadfast members from Indian Country.  It is very important that Tribal Nations and their telecommunications entities continue to be represented on CSRIC.

FCC Seeks Tribal Nominations for Intergovernmental Advisory Committee, 2 Seats - Due April 10, 2015 

The IAC is comprised of 15 representatives from local, state, and Tribal governments, and advises the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on a range of communication issues for which their governments explicitly or inherently share responsibility or administration with the FCC.  The mission of the IAC is to make recommendations to the FCC on the many communications issues affecting local, state and Tribal governments that are within the FCC's jurisdiction. It is important to note that presently there are actually two open Tribal government seats on IAC.  With this effort, we are working to fill those two Tribal governments seats.  Over the years, a number of Tribal leaders have served and made important contributions on this committee.
