Oak Ridge’s Site Specific Advisory Board uses its committee structure to achieve its mission and conduct many of its tasks. Each year the board conducts a planning meeting to determine the best ways to address its responsibilities and most effective committee structure.

The current structure includes the Executive Committee and one subcommittee — the Environmental Management and Stewardship Committee.

Local residents and members of the public  can attend and participate in committee meetings regardless of board membership. Committee minutes are available upon request by calling (865) 241-4583 or (865) 241-4584

Executive Committee

The Board has an Executive Committee consisting of the Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, and Chairs, Co-Chairs, or Vice Chairs of the various standing committees established during the fiscal year. The Executive Committee shall meet at least bimonthly and may hold other meetings at the call of the Board Chair to consider matters of importance that may require immediate resolution. 

The Executive Committee meets the first Wednesday of most months at 5 p.m. at the DOE Information Center. See the ORSSAB calendar for details. 

Environmental Management & Stewardship Committee

This committee drafts recommendations about DOE’s planning and implementation concerning environmental restoration projects on the Oak Ridge Reservation and the treatment, storage, disposal and transportation of wastes. In addition, the committee serves as a forum for discussion about topics relevant to the long-term stewardship of the Oak Ridge Reservation and acts as a liaison between the Department of Energy’s EM program and the community.

The EM & Stewardship Committee meets the fourth Wednesday of most months at 6 p.m. at the DOE Information Center. See the ORSSAB calendar for details.
