OPP Office Advisory Committee —
Charter

The Advisory Committee for the Office of Polar Programs (OPP) provides guidance, recommendations, and oversight in such areas as how OPP can best serve science, promote education, increase workforce diversity, and set investment priorities.

The committee meets twice a year. Members, who normally serve for three years, come from a diverse community that crosses many scientific disciplines and subdisciplines. OPP's goal is to maintain a balanced membership that represents not only the range of science in the polar regions but also the diversity of institutions in academia and the public and private sectors and of polar scientists (including women and underrepresented minorities).
