The NAREEE Advisory Board typically meets two times per year – in the fall and in the spring. The fall meeting is typically held in the Washington, DC metro area and includes an orientation session and opportunities to hear from and interact with USDA leadership. The spring meeting is typically held outside of the DC metro area at a location that showcases the programs and activities of the REE agencies. In addition, the Board’s Executive Committee meets once a month via teleconference and each of the subcommittees of the Board meet at least once a year. The meetings of the NAREEE Advisory Board are announced in the Federal Register. All meetings of the NAREEE Board and its subcommittees are open to the public. A scheduled time for public comment is offered at each meeting.
