About this Collection
Regardless of whether a federal advisory committee (FAC) is required by the President (Presidential), is required by statute (statutory), or is authorized by statute or created under agency authority (discretionary), a formal charter must be prepared and filed before the FAC can meet or take any action.
Besides establishing a FAC, the purpose of the charter is to specify the FAC’s mission or charge, specific duties, and general operational characteristics. Again, transparency and clarity are the primary objectives.
This library contains copies of all of the Sport Fishing and Boating Partnership Council's charters.
