The Flight 93 Advisory Commission is comprised of fifteen members, including family members, local residents and officials, national figures, and the Director of the National Park Service. Public Law 107-226 established the Commission as the legislated body with the authority to prepare “a report containing recommendations for the planning, design, construction, and long-term management of a permanent memorial at the crash site.” The report is due to the Secretary of the Interior and Congress by September 2005. It is anticipated that the Secretary will swear in the Commission nominees in the late summer/early fall of this year.The Flight 93 Memorial Task Force provides a voice for all interested and concerned parties in planning and designing the memorial. The Task Force nominated members for the Flight 93 Advisory Commission and serves as the Commission’s operational arm. The Task Force’s approximately 80 – 90 members include family members, community members, first responders, educators, and other local, regional, and national stakeholders. This working group will provide all of the information and proposals necessary for the Advisory Commission to make its recommendations to the Secretary and Congress.
