Advocacy is at the heart of us as an organisation and the Advisory Panel enables us to take our advocacy effort to the next level.
IAA is active in responding to government and industry inquiries, regulation changes and a range of topical internet matters. Issues may be brought to the Panel by IAA staff or Board or the Panel itself. The Panel provides input to IAA in the formation of its policy positions and advocacy program. IAA considers the Panel’s input and/or recommendations and reports back concerning any action taken by IAA with respect to such input and/or recommendations.
IAA consults with the Panel via meetings and other channels, with the potential of one in-person meeting per year. The Advisory Panel Charter sets out the brief and ways we expect this will operate.
The Panel consists of 5 to 10 individuals who are either Professional members of IAA or representatives of Corporate or Affiliate members. Panel members serve annual terms for up to three years and act in a voluntary capacity.
