Members of the NORA Oil and Gas Extraction Council

The Council has two co-chairs, one a NIOSH Program Manager and one a stakeholder representative. The NIOSH Program Coordinator facilitates 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 Program Coordinator or the NORA Coordinator with questions or comments or to volunteer.
