DCMI is pleased to announce that Marcia Zeng has been elected as inaugural Chair of its Advisory Board and Joseph Busch as Chair-Elect. The Advisory Board is a primary source of expertise informing DCMI activities, serving as DCMI ambassadors, maintaining links between stakeholders in the DCMI community and DCMI, liaising with other metadata and content communities, and serving as a voice of their constituents by drawing the attention of the Initiative to constituent concerns as potential DCMI "work themes". DCMI is in the process of creating a governance structure for the Advisory Board. The election of Advisory Board officers is the first step in that structuring. More information about the charge and membership of the Advisory Board can be found at http://dublincore.org/about/advisory/.
