ACUS Convenings on Select Topics

ACUS’s Office of the Chairman convenes two bodies that meet periodically to discuss topics of interest governmentwide.

The Interagency Roundtable meets every several months at the Conference’s office. Most meetings begin with a presentation by an agency official or outside expert, followed by a moderated discussion, on a topic to be announced in advance. Meetings conclude with an opportunity for participants to suggest new Conference initiatives.

Each government member of the Conference and liaison representative from a government agency is deemed a member of the Roundtable and will receive meeting notifications automatically. Any government member or liaison representative, though, may designate an alternate, either on a standing basis or for individual meetings. Please send any designations to Todd Rubin (, the Roundtable’s coordinator. All other Conference members are welcome to attend Roundtable meetings and should email Todd if they wish to receive meeting notifications.

The Council of Independent Regulatory Agencies has provided a unique forum for officials at independent regulatory agencies to exchange information, hear the perspectives of outside experts, and identify issues that may be appropriate for Conference study. The Chairman’s Office convenes CIRA meetings on a periodic basis as issues warranting CIRA’s attention arise.
