Advisory Councils

CEN is a member driven organization.  Members are engaged in advisory councils to provide input to CEN staff on delivery of products and services that are most relevant to the needs of the community.  The CEN advisory group structure has three areas of focus, Service Management, Technical Advancement, and Educational Development.  Each group is co-chaired by members and consists of at least two representatives from Higher Education, Libraries, K-12, Municipalities, and Open Access.

Technical Advancement Advisory Council (TAAC)

Provides input and advice, through education and exploration, on advanced technical ability and applications that meet the need of CEN member constituencies.

Services Management Advisory Council (SMAC)

Provides advice and recommendations to CEN on matters related to existing and new services, addressing issues such as quality, cost, and adoption.

Engagement & Development Advisory Council (EDAC)

Provides leadership and insight for the development and delivery of technical, professional, and leadership training for CEN members.
