CPBIS Board of Executives Holds its Third Meeting

ATLANTA, GA -- March 9, 2006. The CPBIS Board of Executives (BoE) met on February 23, 2006 in Atlanta to review several Center plans and proposals.

Of particular importance, the Center presented a draft of the CPBIS Sustainability Plan - an overarching plan to ensure that the Center remains an industry-valued, high-quality academic Center - and a CPBIS Communications Plan, which proposed alternative strategies for disseminating Center research, reports, and other work to its industry stakeholders.

Also, the BoE endorsed a new organization structure for the Center's Industry Advisory Board (IAB) which will enable the Board to more directly and more effectively support CPBIS initiatives and activities. The BoE also considered issues and concerns that currently weigh on the minds of the industry's executives. These productive and insightful discussions identified a number of research ideas that the Center will explore as it develops its funding plans for the coming year.

Hosted by FPAC, the BoE will next meet in Ottawa in June, 2006.
