President Barack Obama's Jobs Council hit a notable milestone on Thursday:
- One year without an official meeting.
The 26-member panel is also set to expire at the end of the month, unless Obama extends its tenure.
The group, formally known as the President's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness, last convened on Jan. 17, 2012 for a White House session where it presented formal recommendations to Obama. It was the panel's fourth official meeting since it was created in early 2011.
A White House spokeswoman had no comment Thursday.
Press Secretary Jay Carney said Obama was too busy to meet the panel, a remark the Obama aide later clarified by saying the president was "extremely appreciative" of the group's work.
