1Duties of Committee - point 2sp. bounded / bound?Nicole Harris  
2Duties of Committee - point 3might be helpful to mention that reviewing, participating in consultations and accepting standards from external parties here too.Nicole Harris

Lucy Lynch


3Voting and DecisionsAdd a reference to RFC7282 for clarity.Nicole HarrisLucy Lynch 
4MembershipPerhaps not a part of the charter... though it would be helpful to include somewhere how the inagural membership is chosen since subsequent membership is chosen by existing membership. (NOTE: For the inagural membership, it may be helpful to select specific people, perhaps who have already worked in complementary groups like TAC, AAC, TCAG, to help further establish the duties, responsibilities, and expectations as outlined in the charter.)Laura PaglioneLucy Lynch - current text is confusing 
5MembershipMay help from a transparency perspective to include some information about how "members will be sought" - is this by invitation? via a general call? At the same time of year each time? etc.Laura PaglioneLucy Lynch 
6DescriptionWould it be useful to be explicit that this is a volunteer group?Laura Paglione  
7--Congrats, and best wishes in the establishment of this group. Sounds like it will be a great resource.Laura Paglione  
8Voting and Decision MakingIf, ... "This body officially approves and adopts such standards and processes" (section 3 of Duties), would CACTI then vote for precisely three purposes (adding approval of standards to members and chair)?John Krienke  
9DescriptionThere is an implied relationship to the VP for T&I (as "Sponsor" in the header), but there is no explicit governance statement about who this body reports to and is chartered by. It might be helpful to mention to whom the advisory role serves and the authority that guides the scope of the standards and priorities of its work items. John KrienkeLucy Lynch 
10DutiesI suggest adding a bit more substance to item (2) - spinning up working groups should probably involve more explicit community buy-in. Compared to how IESG does this, there is explicit reference to the consensus process, charter-building, BoF limits etc. The problem is (as REFEDS has learned) that running such a process is a non-trivial undertaking.LeifLucy Lynch 
11MembershipYou may want additional text bounding the pool for external memberships to avoid conflicts of interest and/or over weighting. A call for international participation would also be in order.Lucy
