   Made up of 18 volunteer members from western Kentucky and southern Illinois, the CAB is a Federal Advisory Committee Act board that provides input to EM. It represents a diverse range of people including business professionals, educators, laborers, and environmentalists from communities near the Paducah Site. Members may serve up to three consecutive two-year terms. 

   In addition to community members, representatives from Region 4 of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection, Kentucky Department of Waste Management, Kentucky Cabinet for Health Services, and West Kentucky Wildlife Management Area serve as liaisons to the board. 

   Among their duties, board members make recommendations to EM. The next board meeting is scheduled for Nov. 15. Learn more about the CAB here.
