How is CCIA organized?
The central element in our organization is our monthly general meeting
that is held at DePaul University. We usually provide an introduction to
our group thirty minutes before the start of the general meeting and we
recommend that people new to CCIA take advantage of that to learn how
we operate. In the General meeting there is usually a short account of
recent activities of coalition members and committees and that is
followed by a presentation by a member on a particular topic and
discussion on it.
After coming to general meeting a new member has a choice of participating
in our various committee that constitute CCIA.
- Steering committee
- Tries to organize the efforts of everybody else so that there is no
duplication of effort, and lack of communication between the other committees.
- Public Policy committee
- Examines the long term direction for CCIA, and also keep an eye on the
various legislative issues affecting the network, the technology of the
network, access to it, etc.
- Planning committee
- Responsible for examining ways CCIA can establish a community
computer center. This will allow us to put into place an education
- Web committee
- Is responsible for the information available on our World Wide
Web site. This is part of our service to the community.
