Re: Virtual committee standards

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I recommend that we "encourage" SEAOC to incorporate virtural participation
in existing committees rather than create a whole new committee structure.
If SEAOC is then unwilling to augment the existing committee structure,
then we should seek alternatives.

Bill Allen
