Members of the NORA Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing Sector Council

The Council has two co-chairs, one a NIOSH Program Manager and one a stakeholder representative. The NIOSH Program Coordinator and Assistant Coordinator facilitate the work of the Council. Members attend meetings and are the core of the group. Corresponding members are kept informed of Council activities, have opportunities to provide input on topics to be discussed, and may join workgroups. Contact the Sector Coordinator or the NORA Coordinator with questions or comments or to volunteer.
