The Department of State announces meetings of the U.S. International Telecommunication Advisory Committee (ITAC), and the U.S. International Telecommunication Advisory Committee—Telecommunication Standardization (ITAC-T) National Committee. The purpose of the Committees is to advise the Department on policy and technical issues with respect to the International Telecommunication Union and international telecommunication standardization. Except where noted, meetings will be held at the Department of State, 2201 C Street, NW., Washington, DC.
The ITAC will meet from 10 to noon on April 26, 2000, at the Department of State. The agenda consists of a debrief of the meeting of the working group on ITU reform and planning for preparations for the ITU Council meeting in July 2000.
The ITAC-T will meet from 9:30 to 4 on April 27, 2000, at the Telecommunication Industry Association offices on Wilson Boulevard, Arlington, VA, and May 17, 2000 (at a location to be determined). The agendas will both consist of development of recommendations for the ITU-T Study Programme for the next study period, positions on the alternative approval process, and other preparations for the June ITU Telecommunication Sector Advisory Group (TSAG) and the October World Telecommunication Sector Assembly (WTSA). We regret the short notice due to unanticipated schedule changes for the ITAC Chairman.
