An important component of the RBD process is the participation of a diversity of individuals that comprise and reflect the community where the project is located. Members of the CAC are expected to represent a broad range of stakeholders both locally and regionally from varied organizations and interests. To meet this goal, GOSR is seeking applicants who are affiliated with relevant organizations, some of which are listed below. Please note that being affiliated with an organization is not mandatory to be a CAC member.
This CAC will be led by two co-chairs. While co-chairs will be equal to all other members of the Committee, it is expected that co-chairs will lead CAC meetings, advise GOSR on agenda items, help schedule meetings, and serve as a primary point of contact for the CAC. Co-chairs will be selected by GOSR. Please note that the co-chair position will require a more substantial time commitment. If you are interested in serving as a co-chair, please provide a brief explanation as to why you would make an exceptional co-chair.
We kindly ask all applicants to disclose all conflicts of interests that may give the appearance of impropriety, should you be chosen to sit on the RBD Citizens' Advisory Committee (e.g. if you are a marine contractor that would stand to gain financially from sitting on this Committee). Please note that you are not necessarily prohibited from sitting on the CAC if you have a conflict of interest. We will evaluate each application on a case-by-case basis to make a final determination. Should you be selected as a memeber CAC, we may request additional information regarding your conflict(s) of interest. If you have any further questions regarding conflicts of interest, please email GOSR's Ethics Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
