THE USEITI MULTI-STAKEHOLDER GROUP ADVISORY COMMITTEE
The MSG is convened as a Federal Advisory Committee (FACA) and is comprised of 21 primary members and 20 alternate members from government, industry, and civil society. The Committee will provide collaborative and consensus-based oversight of USEITI implementation and act as a forum for consultation among EITI stakeholders.
There are currently vacancies on the MSG. If you would like to nominate someone, the nomination period is open from August 16th – September 30th. Click here to view the Federal Register Notice.
