Health Services Professional Advisory Committee
Seeks New Members
Deadline Date: 30 June 2008

The Health Services Professional Advisory Committee (HS-PAC) is seeking members for a 3-year term beginning 1 January 2009. The HS-PAC provides advice to the Surgeon General and the Health Services Chief Professional Officer on professional and personnel issues related to the Health Services category. Selections, which are based on the nominee’s commitment to public health activities and specified criteria in the HS-PAC Charter (e.g., organizational, discipline, gender, minority representation), are made by the HS-PAC and approved by the Surgeon General. HS-PAC members are expected to obtain the necessary Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Operating Division, Staff Division, or non-HHS organization support to attend six scheduled meetings per year in Rockville, MD. With permission of the HS-PAC Chair, members stationed outside the Washington, DC, area may participate in up to five of these meetings via teleconference. A self-nomination form (which includes a space for supervisory approval) is available on the HS-PAC Web page at – http://www.usphs-hso.org/pac/subcommittees/membership/pac_nomination.shtml.

Please complete the self-nomination form and send it along with a current curriculum vitae (including a summary sheet) and a cover letter describing how your specific experience and expertise will benefit the HS-PAC. Retired Health Services officers working in a civil service capacity are encouraged to apply. The completed package must be submitted via e-mail (e-mail is preferred; submit a scanned file of the signature page), mail, or fax by 30 June 2008, to:
