The SEAB provides insights and recommendations to the Secretary of Energy on the ongoing Department priorities including advancing research in artificial intelligence, enhancing energy security domestically and abroad, fostering innovation by reducing regulatory road blocks, and continuing a record of energy abundance with the Trump Administration's "all-of-the-above" energy policy.

The U.S.-Japan Roundtable is a continuing program that encourages and facilitates U.S.-Japanese partnering in nuclear energy. Mr. Campbell actively organizes and sponsors international programs and studies on cybersecurity and privacy issues and on global data management in Europe and the Indo-Pacific.

Mr. Campbell recently served on the National Task Force on American Nuclear Energy Leadership organized by the Global Energy Center at the Atlantic Council and continues to support that effort as a member of the Council's Nuclear Energy & National Security Coalition.

Mr. Campbell served as Director of the Office of Policy, Planning and Analysis at the Department of Energy under President Ronald Reagan. Under President George H. W. Bush, he served on the National Petroleum Council, which advises the Secretary of Energy, and on the OCS Advisory Council, which reported to the Secretary of the Interior on issues and policies regarding mineral exploration.
