How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The Committee advises on matters relating to the Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Trail, including but not limited to, the selection of rights-of-way, standards for the erection and maintenance of markers along the trail, and interpretation and administration of the trail.
How is membership balanced?*The membership is made up of federal, state and District of Columbia representatives, as well as members from private organizations who have a recognized interest in the trail.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*Estimated Number of Meetings per Year - 2. One meeting was held in FY 2017, and plans to meet in FY 2018 once the charter is renewed.The Council is very important to continue Trail development and increased community engagement. Council members from Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia, representing community groups, tourism agencies, local and state governments, and non-profit cultural organizations, worked closely as partners during the Trail’s initial development and on the commemoration of the Bicentennial of the War of 1812. During this period there was great investment of time and funds by the NPS and these partners. As the Trail entered its current period of transition and second phase of development, the Advisory Council provided advice on strategic planning goals related to recreation, interpretation and education, tourism, and conservation. It is important to the future of the Trail that we continue to work collaboratively with its Advisory Council benefiting from their advice and experience so we can better understand what our role should be in the communities that we touch, and how we should continue to develop the Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Trail.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*To provide advice and consultation to the Secretary of the Interior and the National Park Service on matters relating to the Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Trail.
Why close or partially close meetings?No Council meetings are closed.
Recommendation RemarksThe Council did not meet in FY 2018. The Council is currently administratively inactive.
