CDC is Recruiting Tribal Leaders to Serve as National Advisors

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention/Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (CDC/ATSDR) Tribal Advisory Committee (TAC) currently has delegate vacancies for the Tribes at Large (two vacancies), Albuquerque area (one vacancy), Bemidji area (one vacancy), Nashville area (one vacancy), and Portland area (one vacancy).

All tribal leaders are encouraged to nominate elected tribal officials or designated representatives to be considered for the two Tribes at Large delegate positions on the TAC. Nominated Tribes at Large delegates must be qualified to represent the views of tribes from a national, collective perspective. Tribes at Large nominees should be either elected tribal officials or designated by an elected tribal official to represent tribes.

Information about the vacant seats, eligibility, selection criteria, and nomination procedures (including forms and templates) can all be located on the  CDC Tribal Support Unit website.

If you have questions or concerns about the TAC or the nomination process, contact the CDC Tribal Support Unit at
