Creative Commons Canada and its affiliate organizations, Athabasca University, BCcampus, and the Samuelson Glushko Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic (CIPPIC), invite expressions of interest from individuals for placement on the inaugural Creative Commons Canada Advisory Board.
The purpose of the Advisory Board, which will be founded on knowledge about key sectors and stakeholder community groups from across Canada, is to provide guidance to Creative Commons Canada on its operations and future development.
A placement on the Advisory Board will involve bi-annual meetings, availability for providing knowledge and expertise, and an appropriate level of contact with the Creative Commons team.
We are interested in hearing from candidates whose attributes might include legal expertise, experience in fundraising or business development, a wide knowledge of Internet technologies, or a background in policy work related to open content licensing.
People we would like to hear from might be involved in artistic communities, cultural institutions, research institutions, education bodies, private sector businesses adopting principles of openness, or they may be Open Access or Free Culture advocates.
Please review the full roles and responsibilites set out in the Advisory Board Guidelines and send us your expression of interest (or a suggestion of a suitable candidate) using the web-based form at www.creativecommons.ca/advisory-board-application by November 30th, 2012.
