The National Advisory Committee on Seniors and Disaster (NACSD) shall provide advice and consultation to the Secretary of HHS to assist them in carrying out these and related activities as they pertain to the unique needs of seniors in preparation for, responses to, and recovery from all-hazards emergencies and disasters.
How is membership balanced?*Members shall be appointed by the HHS Secretary from among the nation’s preeminent scientific, public health, and medical experts in areas consistent with the purpose and functions of the advisory committee. The HHS Secretary, in consultation with such other heads of federal agencies as may be appropriate, shall appoint a maximum of 17 members to the NACSD, ensuring that the total membership is an odd number.

The NACSD shall consist of at least seven non-federal voting members, including a Chairperson, including: at least two non-federal health care professionals with expertise in geriatric medical disaster planning, preparedness, response, or recovery; and at least two representatives from State, local, Tribal, or territorial agencies with expertise in geriatric disaster planning, preparedness, response, or recovery.
