ESTABLISHMENT AND PURPOSE OF FOUNDATION.
There is established the National Foundation on Fitness, Sports, and Nutrition (hereinafter in this Act referred to as the ‘Foundation’). The Foundation is a charitable and nonprofit corporation and is not an agency or establishment of the United States.
“(b)Purposes.—The purposes of the Foundation are—
in conjunction with the Office of the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition, to develop a list and description of programs, events and other activities which would further the purposes and functions outlined in Executive Order 13265 [42 U.S.C. 300u note], as amended, and with respect to which combined private and governmental efforts would be beneficial;
to encourage and promote the participation by private organizations in the activities referred to in subsection (b)(1) and to encourage and promote private gifts of money and other property to support those activities; and
in consultation with such Office, to undertake and support activities to further the purposes and functions of such Executive Order.
“(c)Prohibition on Federal Funding.—
The Foundation may not accept any Federal funds.
BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF THE FOUNDATION.
“(a)Establishment and Membership.—The Foundation shall have a governing Board of Directors (hereinafter referred to in this Act as the ‘Board’), which shall consist of 9 members each of whom shall be a United States citizen and—
3 of whom should be knowledgeable or experienced in one or more fields directly connected with physical fitness, sports, nutrition, or the relationship between health status and physical exercise; and
6 of whom should be leaders in the private sector with a strong interest in physical fitness, sports, nutrition, or the relationship between health status and physical exercise.
The membership of the Board, to the extent practicable, should represent diverse professional specialties relating to the achievement of physical fitness through regular participation in programs of exercise, sports, and similar activities, or to nutrition. The Assistant Secretary for Health, the Executive Director of the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition, the Director for the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, the Director of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, and the Director for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shall be ex officio, nonvoting members of the Board. Appointment to the Board or its staff shall not constitute employment by, or the holding of an office of, the United States for the purposes of laws relating to Federal employment.
“(b)Appointments.—Within 90 days from the date of enactment of this Act [Dec. 22, 2010], the members of the Board shall be appointed by the Secretary [probably means the Secretary of Health and Human Services] in accordance with this subsection. In selecting individuals for appointments to the Board, the Secretary should consult with—

the Majority Leader of the Senate concerning the appointment of one member;
the President Pro Tempore concerning the appointment of one member;
the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives concerning the appointment of one member; and

No individual may serve more than 2 consecutive terms as a member.
The Chairman shall be elected by the Board from its members for a 2-year term and shall not be limited in terms or service, other than as provided in subsection (c).
A majority of the current membership of the Board shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business.
The Board shall meet at the call of the Chairman at least once a year. If a member misses 3 consecutive regularly scheduled meetings, that member may be removed from the Board and the vacancy filled in accordance with subsection (c).
“(g)Reimbursement of Expenses.—
Members of the Board shall serve without pay, but may be reimbursed for the actual and necessary traveling and subsistence expenses incurred by them in the performance of the duties of the Foundation, subject to the same limitations on reimbursement that are imposed upon employees of Federal agencies.
“(h)Limitations.—The following limitations apply with respect to the appointment of employees of the Foundation:
Employees may not be appointed until the Foundation has sufficient funds to pay them for their service.

A member of the Board may not receive compensation for serving as an employee of the Foundation.
The first employee appointed by the Board shall be the Secretary of the Board who shall serve, at the direction of the Board, as its chief operating officer and shall be knowledgeable and experienced in matters relating to physical fitness, sports, and nutrition.
No Public Health Service employee nor the spouse or dependent relative of such an employee may serve as a member of the Board of Directors or as an employee of the Foundation.
“(4) Any individual who is an employee or member of the Board of the Foundation may not (in accordance with the policies developed under subsection (i)) personally or substantially participate in the consideration or determination by the Foundation of any matter that would directly or predictably affect any financial interest of—
the individual or a relative (as such term is defined in section 109(16) of the Ethics in Government Act, 1978 [5 U.S.C. App.]) of the individual; or
