On 5 February, 2009, Ofcom announced my appointment as the new chair of its Advisory Committee for England (ACE). I will also be the member for the South East Region, working with seven other new members and a continuing member, Anne Scorer, who was appointed in 2005. The mission of ACE is to provide advice to Ofcom about the interests and opinions of people living in the Nations and Regions on all communication matters. So, please let me hear from you, through Ofcom or by commenting on my blog.
For more information, let me refer you to the press release from Ofcom, which lists the members of ACE. Oxford University also issued a press release, illustrating the value Oxford places on public service activities. Some coverage of the appointments appeared in Media Week.
