Technical Subcommittee meetings are open to the public. Meetings are being held utilizing tele-conference phone systems and do not necessarily have a meeting location. Therefore, any person wishing to participate or listen to a tele-conference meeting needs to make prior arrangements with the Technical Subcommittee Chairperson no later than two business days prior to the meeting. Any person wishing for committee members to review material or information during the public comment period or any other part of the agenda shall submit the information to the Technical Subcommittee Chairperson no later than 5 days prior to the meeting. Electronically submitted information is preferred, such as, but not limited to, Adobe Print Document Format (PDF), Microsoft Office Programs, and WordPerfect. Please contact your Subcommittee Chairperson about the specifics of submitting information.
From time to time, the Technical Subcommittee Chairperson may have a location where those parties interested in participating or listening to the meeting will be welcome. The Technical Subcommittee Chairperson has the right to request interested parties to participate at a location or to participate by tele-conference. The location of a meeting, if one is convened, will not necessarily be in the Capital Region. Furthermore, a meeting that is held at a location may still have committee members participating by tele-conference and the submitted information requirements in the previous paragraph apply.
