Invitation to Potential TAC Members

To: Potential Committee Members
RE: Telephone Advisory Committee
Date: August 9, 1995

UCSB's telephone switching system is reaching the end of its useful life. We have some short- and long-term decisions to make and we need help to make the best decisions that we possibly can.

Please join ten to twelve of your faculty and staff colleagues, assembled from throughout the campus, to provide advice on a replacement for our telephone system. As you can read from the enclosure, that provides greater details on our situation and the nature of our choices, your participation will be required over several months and involve meetings perhaps as often as once every two weeks.

Please seriously consider participating; we do need your help.

The advisory committee will be assisted by Vince Sefcik and others from Communications Services. The advice produced by the group will be used for campus consultation with a variety of senior administrators, departments, and the Senate. The advisory committee will report to me and I am currently at work to select a chair for the group.

The work that I am asking you to do is hard and the time it will take is precious to you, but it has all the ingredients for a very rewarding effort: uncertainty, requires wisdom in assessing the future; wide and critical impact, the system will be used by virtually every person on campus as an essential service; and, large economic consequence.

Please let me know of your willingness to serve by August 25, 1995. I can be reached at extension 3132; Profs, DNS; or e-mail, adm3shel@ucsbvm.ucsb.edu. Thank you.
