Welcome to the CNVC Board section of NVCwiki. The goal of this area is to enable CNVC Board members and others they might select, to edit official documents. It is our hope that two needs may be met in this way. First, the CNVC Board will be able to collaborate on the creation of official documents by using this wiki interface. Second, anyone interested in better understanding CNVC decisions will be able to watch the documents evolve and add their own comments and suggestions in the Public Comment areas. CNVC Board and [[CNVC LT]] sections of this wiki until recently were combined due to extensive overlap, but are now maintained separately.

UPDATE March 10th, 2009: Minutes from the Board of Directors' meetings are now available on the cnvc.org website! We will keep the minutes below on the nvcwiki for now, but ALL NEW MINUTES WILL BE POSTED TO THE CNVC WEBSITE ONLY.

You can find the minutes by going to http://cnvc.org and choosing the COMMUNITY tab and GOVERNANCE, and BOARD, and then there is a link on the left hand bar with CNVC Board Minutes. OR by clicking this link: http://cnvc.org/en/about-us/governance/board-directors/cnvc-board-minutes/cnvc-board-meeting-agreements

We have removed the call-in information that used to be below, to avoid confusion and misleading info if/when these numbers change. You will find call-in information on the http://CNVC.org website - on this following link: http://cnvc.org/en/community/governance/board-directors/teleconference-dial-information/teleconference-dial-information (you can also find the dial-in information by going to http://cnvc.org and choosing the COMMUNITY tab and GOVERNANCE, and BOARD, and find the link on the left hand bar, right under the CNVC Board Minutes.


. . . . . . . .

Welcome to the CNVC Board section of NVCwiki. The goal of this area is to enable CNVC Board members and others they might select, to edit official documents. It is our hope that two needs may be met in this way. First, the CNVC Board will be able to collaborate on the creation of official documents by using this wiki interface. Second, anyone interested in better understanding CNVC decisions will be able to watch the documents evolve and add their own comments and suggestions in the Public Comment areas. CNVC Board and CNVC LT sections of this wiki until recently were combined due to extensive overlap, but are now maintained separately.

Note: This section is now distinct from the CNVC LT and CNVC GCC sections.
