Legislation StatusEnacted
How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The Commission has frequently advised the NPS on implementing a strategic plan for interpreting and preserving Maine Acadian culture by creating an action plan that included the development of a travelling exhibit on Maine Acadian culture; development of an NPS Unigrid brochure about Maine Acadian culture in the St. John Valley of Maine (printed and distributed in 1998); published a semimonthly newsletter, Maine Acadian Heritage, as a supplement to the ST. JOHN VALLEY TIMES; and advised the NPS and other state and local groups in establishing the Maine Acadian Heritage Council, a nonprofit organization to assume management and advisory roles and be fully operational when the Commission expires in 2000.
How is membership balanced?*Currently, the Commission consists of eight members: one representing state and local organizations; one each from the disciplines of anthropology, history, and historic preservation; two members representing the Maine legislature; one representing the Chancellor of the University of Maine System; and one, the chairman, representing the Governor of Maine. Coming from a wide variety of backgrounds and possessing complementary expertise in cultural preservation, commissioners held lively discussions on the issues coming before them. The Heritage Council and interpretive working groups reported to the Commission at regularly scheduled public meetings.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*Commission meetings were scheduled semimonthly, through May 1999. At that time members voted by phone ballot to discontinue meetings. There was no quorum at any of the three 1999 meetings that were scheduled through May.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*Other than the Maine Acadian Culture Preservation Commission and the Maine Acadian Heritage Council, there are no other bodies devoted to the preservation of Maine Acadian culture in Maine. The Commission serves as a clearing house for Maine Acadian issues and serves a vital integrating function in focusing public attention on the preservation of Maine Acadian culture as a whole. Without having public attention focused upon it, Maine Acadian culture is in danger of disappearing piecemeal.
Why close or partially close meetings?All meetings are open.
Recommendation RemarksPursuant to Section 302(a)(b), Public Law 102-525, October 26, 1992, this committee is exempt from the rechartering requirements of section 14(b) of FACA. Additionally, any member may continue to serve after the expiration of his or her term until a successor is appointed.
