For the purposes of this provision, “Presidential directive” includes an executive order or executive memorandum.
(c) Meetings of advisory committees will be open to the public unless there is a compelling reason which requires nondisclosure of the subject matter in accordance with public law (5 U.S.C. 552 (b)).
