Nominations are open for the 2013 PBS SoCaL Interactive Advisory Council (iAC)
What is the iAC?
The iAC is composed of greater Los Angeles leaders in mobile, web, games, eCommerce, journalism, and social media who want to catalyze change in public media. The whole point is to get some really brainy individuals who represent a range of disciplines in a room to discuss the state of all things interactive that intersect public media. Our small but mighty interactive team will take the best advice from the council and try to move the needle of innovation just a little bit farther every year.
See the boring version about the iAC and its purpose.
What does the iAC do?
The Advisory Council is a one year volunteer opportunity that runs from July to July every year. We don’t ask much of our council’s time; just 4 meetings a year, a monthly one page report to read (and respond to if they choose), and their advice on topics related to their individual expertise.
What does the iAC get for participating?
Council members get unique behind-the-scenes access to the operations, hurdles, and goals including our code and strategies. We'll have open and honest discussions about the state of public media innovation and members will get "(insert specialty here)-know-it-all" titles and be looked up to by the interactive staff for a whole year. Of course they also get invited to some swanky PBS SoCaL events like PubCamp West and a pre-SXSW mixer. Rumor has it that there may also be some top secret screenings for the council.
How many people are on the iAC every year?
Every year the size will vary. It will depend on the nominations received and the goals of the station in the upcoming year. There will be about as many council members as a league of super heroes.
