SUMMARY: The Bureau of the Census (U.S. Census Bureau) is giving notice 
of a joint meeting, followed by separate and concurrently held meetings 
of the Census Advisory Committees (CACs) on the African American 
Population, the American Indian and Alaska Native Populations, the 
Asian Population, the Hispanic Population, and the Native Hawaiian and 
Other Pacific Islander Populations. The Committees will address issues 
related to the 2010 Decennial Census Program. Last-minute changes to 
the schedule are possible, which could prevent advance notification.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The CACs on the African American Population, 
the American Indian and Alaska Native Populations, the Asian 
Population, the Hispanic Population, and the Native Hawaiian and Other 
Pacific Islander Populations are comprised of nine members each. The 
Committees provide an organized and continuing channel of communication 
between the representative race and ethnic populations and the Census 
Bureau. The Committees represent an outside-user perspective about how 
research and design plans for the 2010 Decennial Census, the American 
Community Survey, and other related programs achieve goals and satisfy 
needs associated with these communities. The Committees also recommend 
to the Census Bureau how data can best be disseminated to diverse race 
and ethnic populations and other users. The Committees are established 
in accordance with the Federal Advisory Committee Act (Title 5, United 
States Code, Appendix 2, Section 10(a)(b)).
    All meetings are open to the public, with a brief period set aside 
for public comment. However, individuals with extensive questions or 
statements must submit them in writing to Ms. Jeri Green at least three 
days before the meeting. Seating is available to the public on a first-
come, first-served basis.
    These meetings are physically accessible to people with 
disabilities. Requests for sign language interpretation or other 
auxiliary aids should be directed to the Committee Liaison Officer as 
soon as possible, preferably two weeks prior to the meeting.

    Dated: April 3, 2007.
