Governance - ERAC (March '12)
The External Relations Advisory Council (ERAC) met Monday, March 5. Upcoming changes to Internet2 governance, including changes from the current advisory council structure to a new Program Advisory Groups (PAGs) for Internet2 management, were discussed. Diversity of opinions and member composition in these PAGs was noted as important, and additional ideas ensued regarding Exchange Points overseas and in the U.S. Also, as the Standing Committee on International Strategy (SCIS) is reconvened, this group will discuss next steps. The next ERAC call will be held Monday, April 2, and ERAC participants will also meet on Wednesday, April 25 in Arlington at the Spring 2012 Internet2 Member Meeting.
