22 / TRB 2021 AnnuAl RepoRT TRB’s Executive Committee provides strategic direction and oversight of TRB’s programs and activities. The 26 appointed members of the volunteer Executive Committee are chosen from among public- and private-sector executives, promi- nent academicians, and members of the National Academies. In addition, 19 ex officio members—top executives from TRB’s sponsoring agencies—serve on the Executive Com- mittee. There are two additional ex officio voting members; however, they are former chairs rather than representatives of sponsoring agencies. As TRB Executive Director, Neil Pedersen is the only staff member on the committee. Susan A.
