The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC or Commission) is requesting nominations for Associate Members of the Energy and Environmental Markets Advisory Committee (EEMAC or Committee) and also inviting the submission of potential topics for discussion at future Committee meetings.
The EEMAC currently has fourteen Associate Members and Commissioner Dan M. Berkovitz, the EEMAC's Sponsor, seeks additional Associate Members of the EEMAC. Accordingly, the Commission invites the submission of nominations for EEMAC Associate Members who represent a wide diversity of opinions and a broad spectrum of interests related to the energy and environmental markets and their regulation by the Commission. To advise the Commission effectively, EEMAC Associate Members must have a high level of expertise and experience in the energy and/or environmental markets and the Commission's regulation of such markets, including from a historical perspective.
In addition, the Commission invites submissions regarding the topics on which EEMAC should focus. Such topics should:
A. Reflect matters of concern to exchanges, trading firms, end users, energy producers, and regulators regarding energy and environmental markets and their regulation by the Commission; and/or
B. Are important to otherwise assist the Commission in identifying and understanding the impact and implications of the evolving market structure of the energy, environmental, and other related markets.
