Would You Like to Serve on the Advisory Council?

As vacancies on the council occur, the Brain and Spinal Cord Injury Secion pulls submitted applications from the file and reviews them to determine if the applicants meet the statutory requirement to serve in the vacant seat. Those that meet the requirement, are then submitted to the Office of Performance and Quality Improvement, to review the applicants and make a recommendation to the State Surgeon General. The State Surgeon General reviews the recommendation, and if in agreement, appoints the individual to Advisory Council.
