The Community Liaison Committee

The governance structure for the NEIDL consists of several committees, including a seventeen member Community Liaison Committee (CLC), to promote public participation and transparency. CLC members provide outreach and feedback to facilitate communication and information flow between the NEIDL and the community. They play a vital role in ensuring transparency in the operations and activities at the NEIDL. Chosen through an open, self-nomination process, CLC members meet quarterly and serve on a volunteer basis.
