AlertIn support of the Office of Personnel Management guidance to strengthen our efforts to protect the federal workforce to ensure continuity of operations, NIH is urging that all large meetings and symposia that are not mission critical and are scheduled to be held at NIH facilities or organized by NIH over the next 30 days either be held virtually using tele/videoconferencing services, postponed, or cancelled.
This meeting will be held as a virtual meeting only, using tele/videoconferencing services. There will be no in-person attendance. Please contact Dr. Eugene Hayunga at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
As a federal agency, NICHD is required to receive advice from various advisory committees, task forces, boards, and commissions to help the Institute achieve its goals. Advice from these entities is governed by the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA) (Public Law 92-463) and must be both objective and accessible to the public.
The NACHHD Council includes members from a variety of scientific fields, professions, and locations; members are nominated and approved in compliance with FACA regulations. For more information on FACA, visit http://www.gsa.gov/portal/category/21242.
The NACHHD Council advises the NICHD Director and other Institute leadership on issues related to the Institute's mission and research.
