and to obtain feedback on community advisory boards.
The webinar, which will begin at 1 p.m. EDT, will be held in conjunction with a series of
11 public meetings the NRC staff will be holding on the same topic during the next several months
at locations across the country. Participants will be able to view slides prepared by NRC staff and

law on Jan. 14, 2019, the NRC is required to prepare a report for Congress on the best practices of
community advisory boards in communities around decommissioning nuclear power plants. Both
the webinar and the public meetings will help the NRC gather related information.
