Advisory & Governance
MCNC values greatly advice and feedback from constituents. Our advisory structure provides a mechanism for receiving valuable strategic advice and engaging in tactical and operational collaborations with the NCREN community.
MCNC is governed by the Board of Directors, who are primarily business leaders in education and technology arenas. The Board of Directors is the only component of the governance and advisory structure with fiduciary responsibility.
The MAC provides valuable strategic advice to MCNC. Members of the MAC are primarily technology leaders in the education environment. These technology leaders understand the technical needs of the community and brief and advise the board on opportunities and issues that are strategic in nature.
Working Groups are open to all constituents, and are formed to advise MCNC on issues specific to the group's area of expertise.
Focus Groups are formed to deliver a specific, assigned deliverable to a working group.
