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 or groups of agencies. The agencies with greater 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 2019, the EHOPAC reclassified the two former “At-Large” and one “Open” Agency seats. These three seats were became Open Agency I, II and III seats and are assigned as follows: Open I (EHOs at agencies with no agency representation, i.e., OS, UDSA, OS, etc.); Open II (EHOs at agencies with one VM seat); Open III (EHOs assigned to agencies with two or more VM seats). Current At-Large VMs will retain their seat designation until the end of their term. Afterwards, the At-Large designation will no longer be used and the Open Agency seats will be filled.
