Governance Update - ERAC (July '11)
The External Relations Advisory Council (ERAC), met July 18. The U.S. UCAN Task Force report was discussed as well as responses from various community entities and constituencies. ERAC Chair Tim Lance recognizes this as an important topic in the near term and encouraged council members to provide their views, concerns and comments. The Industry representative council seat vacated by Bob Brammer will be filled. ERAC members are asked to think of possible potential candidates for this seat. Brammer will continue his involvement in ERAC, but in a slightly different capacity as a representative of Internet2. The tentative schedule for Internet2 governance-specific meetings at the upcoming Fall Member Meeting was also shared with ERAC. ERAC is scheduled to meet August 1, August 15 and August 29.
