HSIN Governance

HSIN Advisory Committee

The Department chartered the Homeland Security Information Network Advisory Committee (HSINAC), a Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA) body, in 2007 to provide advice and recommendations to homeland security leadership and the HSIN program. The committee is composed of up to 20 members from the different homeland security mission areas: federal, state, local and tribal law enforcement; emergency management; fire services; public health; and the private sector. Read and download meeting minutes, recommendations, the charter and bylaws, and other committee communications.
