Tribal Advisory Committee
The Tribal Advisory Committee (TAC) advises CDC/ATSDR on policy issues and broad strategies that may significantly affect American Indian/Alaska Native communities. The TAC will assist CDC/ATSDR in fulfilling its mission to promote health and quality of life by preventing and controlling disease, injury, and disability through established and ongoing relationships and consultation sessions.
The TAC is comprised of 16 voluntary representatives: one delegate (and one authorized representative) from a federally-recognized tribe geographically located in each of the 12 Indian Health Service Areas, and one delegate (and one authorized representative) from four federally-recognized tribes at large.
Delegates must be elected tribal officials, acting in their official capacity as elected officials of their tribe, with authority to act on behalf of the tribe, and qualified to represent the views of the Indian tribes in the respective area from which they are nominated. Each delegate may designate an authorized representative to act on their behalf. An authorized representative may be an elected tribal official or designated tribal official that is qualified to represent the views of tribes. Authorized representatives might include, but are not limited to, tribal health officers, tribal health system executive directors, and leadership of regional and national non-profit corporations (501.c.3) such as the National Congress of American Indians, the National Indian Health Board, and the National Indian Child Welfare Association.
