LEPC ORGANIZATION (http://denr.sd.gov/des/gw/SARATitleIII/LEPC_Organization.aspx)
GOALS & OBJECTIVES
I. LEPC STRUCTURE
A. MEMBERSHIP AND OFFICERS
1. LIST OF REQUIRED REPRESENTATIVES
The LEPC should include, at a minimum, representatives from the following groups or organizations:
LEPC membership should be representative of the community and include those who will use the emergency plan referred to under the Duties and Responsibilities section of this handbook. The plan is more likely to be successful and credible if the people who implement it during disasters, emergencies, or exercises were part of the planning process. Those not involved in emergency response should also be part of the planning process because they add a different perspective and bring new ideas to the process. They are likely to ask the simple questions that need to be asked.
In some cases one person could represent more than one group. Because state emergency response commissions (SERCs) review the affiliations of nominees to the LEPC to assure legal requirements for membership are met, some LEPCs have nominated representatives by job titles, rather than individual names. This helps to assure continuity of LEPC membership and makes the appointment of replacement members easier.
LEPC officers should consist of a chairperson, vice chairperson, and secretary. A treasurer or others would be optional. Important factors to consider in choosing officers are leadership abilities, availability, credibility, management skills, and commitment to the LEPC process.
