SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: As authorized under section 217 of the 
Public Health Service Act, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 218, the Secretary 
established the NACMH. The NACMH is governed by the Federal Advisory 
Committee Act (5 U.S.C. Appendix 2), which sets forth standards for the 
formation and use of advisory committees.
    The NACMH, consults with and makes recommendations to the Secretary 
of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the HRSA 
Administrator concerning the organization, operation, selection, and 
funding of migrant health centers and other entities under grants and 
contracts under section 330 of the PHS Act.
    The NACMH Charter requires that the Council consist of 15 members, 
each serving a 4-year term. Twelve Council members are required to be 
governing board members of migrant health centers and other entities 
assisted under section 254(b) of the PHS Act. Of these 12, at least 9 
must be patient board members. The remaining three must be individuals 
qualified by training and experience in the medical sciences or in the 
administration of health programs. New members filling a vacancy that 
occurred prior to expiration of a term may serve only for the remainder 
of such term. Members may serve after the expiration of their terms 
until their successors have taken office, but no longer than 120 days.
    Compensation: Members who are not full-time Federal employees shall 
be paid at the rate of $200 per day including travel time plus per diem 
and travel expenses in accordance with Standard Government Travel 
Regulations.
    Specifically, HRSA is requesting nominations for:
     Board Member/Patient (1 vacancy):
    A nominee must be a member or member-elect of a governing board of 
an organization receiving funding or look-alike designation under 
section 330(g) of the PHS Act. A board member nominee must also be a 
patient of the entity that he/she represents. Additionally, a board 
member nominee must be familiar with the delivery of primary health 
care to migratory and seasonal agricultural workers (MSAWs) and their 
families.

their families.
    A complete nomination package should include the following 
information for each nominee:
    (1) A NACMH Nomination form; (2) three letters of reference; and 
(3) a statement of prior service on the NACMH; and (4) a biographical 
sketch of the nominee or a copy of his/her curriculum vitae. The 
nomination package must also state that the nominee is willing to serve 
as a member of the NACMH and appears to have no conflict of interest 
that would preclude membership. An ethics review is conducted for each 
selected nominee. Please contact Esther Paul at [email protected] and/or 
Priscilla Charles at [email protected] to obtain a nomination form.
    HHS strives to ensure that the membership of HHS federal advisory 
committees is balanced in terms of points of view represented, 
consistent with the committee's authorizing statute and charter. 
Appointment to the NACMH shall be made without discrimination on the 
basis of age, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, disability, 
and cultural, religious, or socioeconomic status. The Department 
encourages nominations of qualified candidates from all groups and 
locations.
