  • Description:
    The purpose of the Tribal Consultation Advisory Committee (TCAC) to the Director is to advise the Director of CDC and Administrator of ATSDR, on policy issues and broad strategies that may affect American Indian / Alaska Native (AI/AN) tribes and people. The TCAC assists CDC in fulfilling its mission to promote health and quality of life by preventing and controlling disease, injury, and disability through established and on-going relationships and consultation sessions. CDC honors the sovereignty of AI/AN governments, respects the inherent rights of self- governance, commits to work on a government-to-government basis, and uphold the federal trust responsibility. The TCAC provides a forum for meetings between CDC leadership and elected or appointed tribal leaders (or their designated employees with authority to act on their behalf); as well as representatives of national tribal organizations designated by tribal leaders to act on their behalf, in compliance with the exemptions with the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA). The meetings facilitate the exchange of views, information, or advice concerning the intergovernmental responsibilities in the implementation and / or administration of CDC programs, including those that arise explicitly or implicitly under statute, regulation or Executive Order. Such meetings include, but are not limited to, seeking consensus, exchanging views, information, advice, and/or recommendations, or facilitating any other interaction relating to intergovernmental responsibilities or administration. Meetings may be face-to-face or via conference call. TCAC meetings complement and do not supplant the Tribal Consultation process between CDC and Tribes. The TCAC Meeting itself was convened on January 26-27, 2010; a Tribal Leader Orientation was convened on January 27, 2010; and the Tribal Consultation Session was convened on January 28, 2010. A number of presentations were made during the TCAC Meeting, TCAC Orientation Session, and Tribal Consultation Session, which are very briefly summarized here.
