NRC Welcomes Suggestions for Committee Members-But Hurry

NRC Welcomes Suggestions for Committee Members-But Hurry

The National Research Council’s (NRC) Space Studies Board welcomes recommendations for members of three standing committees that are being formed, but suggestions must be submitted by close of business tomorrow, January 30, 2012.

In addition to the ad hoc study committees that the NRC creates to provide advice on particular topics, permanent standing committees also may be formed on broader subjects that provide a mechanism for ongoing interaction with members of various segments of the science and engineering communities.

The Space Studies Board (SBB) is currently forming or re-forming three of its standing committees:  the Committee on Astronomy and Astrophysics (joint with the NRC’s Board on Physics and Astronomy); the Committee on Astrobiology and Planetary Science (a merger of the SSB’s former Committee on the Origins and Evolution of Life and the Committee on Planetary and Lunar Exploration); and the Committee on Earth Sciences and Applications from Space (formerly the Committee on Earth Science).

More information on the role of standing committees at the NRC and how to send in your suggestions are on the SSB website under “Other News.”
