Washington, D. C. — Commodity Futures Trading Commission Commissioner
Summer K. Mersinger, sponsor of the CFTC’s Energy and Environmental
Markets Advisory Committee (EEMAC), is seeking nominations for
associate membership of the EEMAC and potential topics for future
EEMAC meetings through a formal request for submissions in the Federal
Register. The deadline for submissions is July 13, 2022.
“Intense geopolitical turbulence, record energy and food
prices, and increasingly volatile markets are impacting businesses
throughout our economy, and all Americans are beginning to see the
effects in everyday prices from a bag of groceries to a tank of gas.
Derivatives markets play a key role in times of unpredictable physical
commodity markets, serving as critical price discovery and hedging
tools for those in the markets,” said Commissioner Mersinger. “EEMAC
is critical to the work we do at the CFTC, and I am eager to hear from
the real experts in industry and the broader public regarding how the
CFTC can best promote price discovery and risk management in our
energy and environmental markets. Regulators cannot operate in a
vacuum, and consulting with those who are experienced and
knowledgeable about these markets, and who are using these markets
day-to-day, is vital to our ability to do our job and understand how
the CFTC’s policies, rulemakings, and oversight impact these markets,”
In the Federal Register Notice published
today, Commissioner Mersinger invites members of the public to
nominate individuals (including self-nominations) for associate
membership on the EEMAC and propose potential topics for the EEMAC to
prioritize in making policy recommendations to the CFTC.
EEMAC is an advisory committee established by the Dodd-Frank Wall
Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. The EEMAC is authorized to
conduct public meetings, submit reports and recommendations to the
Commission, and otherwise serve as a vehicle for discussion and
communication on matters of concern to exchanges, trading firms, end
users, energy producers, and regulators regarding energy and
EEMAC nominations and potential topics
should be emailed to Lauren Fulks, EEMAC Secretary at
[email protected], or sent by hand delivery or courier to Chris Lucas,
Chief of Staff to Commissioner Summer K. Mersinger, Commodity Futures
Trading Commission, Three Lafayette Centre, 1155 21st Street NW,
Washington, DC 20581. Please use the title ‘‘Energy and Environmental
Markets Advisory Committee’’ for any nominations or topics submitted.
