Advisory Council on Employee Welfare and Pension Benefit Plans; 
Nominations for Vacancies

    Section 512 of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 
(ERISA), 88 Stat. 895, 29 U.S.C. 1142, provides for the establishment 
of an Advisory Council on Employee Welfare and Pension Benefit Plans 
(the Council), which is to consist of 15 members to be appointed by the 
Secretary of Labor (the Secretary) as follows: three representatives of 
employee organizations (at least one of whom shall be a representative 
of an organization whose members are participants in a multiemployer 
plan); three representatives of employers (at least one of whom shall 
be a representative of employers maintaining or contributing to 
multiemployer plans); one representative each from the fields of 
insurance, corporate trust, actuarial counseling, investment 
counseling, investment management, and accounting; and three 
representatives from the general public (one of whom shall be a person 
representing those receiving benefits from a pension plan). No more 
than eight members of the Council shall be members of the same 
political party.
    Members shall be persons qualified to appraise the programs 
instituted under ERISA. Appointments are for terms of three years. The 
prescribed duties of the Council are to advise the Secretary with 
respect to the carrying out of his or her functions under ERISA, and to 
submit to the Secretary, or his or her designee, recommendations with 
respect thereto. The Council will meet at least four times each year.
    The terms of five members of the Council expire on November 14, 
2010. The groups or fields they represent are as follows: (1) Employee 
organizations (representing an organization whose members are 
participants in a multiemployer plan); (2) employers (representing 
employers maintaining or contributing to multiemployer plans); (3) 
accounting; (4) insurance; and (5) the general public. The Department 
of Labor is committed to equal opportunity in the workplace and seeks a 
broad-based and diverse ERISA Advisory Council.
    Accordingly, notice is hereby given that any person or organization 
desiring to recommend one or more individuals for appointment to the 
Advisory Council on Employee Welfare and Pension Benefit Plans, to 
represent any of the groups or fields specified in the preceding 
paragraph, may submit recommendations to Larry Good, ERISA Advisory 
Council Executive Secretary, Frances Perkins Building, U.S. Department 
of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue, NW., Suite N-5623, Washington, DC 
20210, or to good.larry@dol.gov. Recommendations must be submitted on 
or before September 17, 2010. Recommendations may be in the form of a 
letter, resolution or petition, signed by the person making the 
recommendation or, in the case of a recommendation by an organization, 
by an authorized representative of the organization. Recommendations 
should include the position for which the nominee is recommended and 
the nominee's full name, mailing address, phone number, and e-mail 
address. The recommendation also must state that the candidate will 
accept appointment to the Council if offered.
    Nominees will be contacted to provide information on their 
political affiliation and their status as registered lobbyists. 
Nominees should be aware of the time commitment for attending meetings 
and actively participating in the work of the Council. Historically, 
this has meant a commitment of 15-20 days per year.

Michael L. Davis,
Deputy Assistant Secretary, Employee Benefits Security Administration.
