National Advisory Committee for Women Designation of Marjorie Bell Chambers as Acting Chair.
The President today announced that he will designate Marjorie Bell Chambers as the Acting Chair of the National Advisory Committee for Women. The designation of Chambers was recommended by the Committee on the basis of a poll of its membership.
In this temporary assignment, Chambers' initial task will be to work with Sarah Weddington to expand the access of the Committee to policymaking forums within the administration. The White House anticipates a solid working relationship with the Committee and will continue to consult with it and seek its advice.

The White House will continue to consult with Chambers, the Committee, and former members of the Committee on the selection of a permanent chair and the continuing role of the Committee.
