I understand that this is an advisory committee

I will commit my time to this CAG as necessary (estimated 4-6 hours per month, slightly more for co-chairs)
I recognize that it will be a requirement to actively participate in outreach to bring awareness to public meetings
I recognize that there will be a procedure to remove members that have not complied with participatory requirements as well as a process to appoint new members from a waiting list.
I recognize that Citizen Advisory Group meetings will not be open to the general public.
Conflicts of Interest
We kindly ask that all applicants disclose all conflicts of interests that may give the appearance of impropriety, should you be chosen to sit on the RBD-HR CAG. (E.g. if you are a marine contractor that would stand to gain financially from sitting on this Group). Please note that you are not necessarily prohibited from sitting on the CAG if you have a conflict of interest. We will evaluate each application on a case-by-case basis to make a final determination. Should you be selected as a member of the CAG, we may request additional information regarding your conflicts.
Consideration for Co-Chair
The CAG will be led by at least two co-chairs. While co-chairs will be equal to all other members of the Group, it is expected that the co-chairs will lead CAG meetings, advise the City of Hoboken and NJDEP on agenda items, help schedule meetings, and serve as a primary point of contact for the CAG. Please note that the co-chair position will require a more substantial time commitment.
Please consider me for co-chair
Please provide a brief explanation as to why you would make an exceptional co-chair.
Agreement and Signature
