TAMS Steering Committee

TAMS Steering Committee:
The TAMS Steering Committee is composed of a rotating roster of tribal environmental professionals and ex officio members who meet regularly to discuss tribal air quality monitoring and other air quality technical support needs. The TAMS Steering Committee determines the Center's support efforts. The Steering Committee also relays to EPA and other officials about tribal concerns regarding air quality management. Committee members are elected for three-year, staggered terms and are eligible for re-election. It is preferred for candidates to be nominated by their peers, however, candidates can also self-nominate. Members are selected based on their experience and availability. The TAMS Steering Committee attempts to maintain the broadest possible regional representation.
