Commissioned Corps of the U.S. Public Health Service

Environmental Health Officer Professional Advisory Committee

The membership of the EHOPAC is composed of environmental health officers (EHOs) from multiple agencies. Seats on the PAC are determined by the number of EHOs serving in an individual agency. The agencies with larger numbers of EHOs receive more seats on the PAC. The most current agency assignment statistics for EHOs are used to determine the number of voting members by agency in the adjacent table.

Note:  Starting in 2017, the EHOPAC added one additional seat, termed "Open Agency" seat.  This seat is for any EHO serving in an agency with only one Voting Member on the EHOPAC.
