We are LIVE online every day at 11:00 until 11:30 AM Eastern Time (04:00 UTC). for on-demand consultation on anything have to do with regulations, codes and standards that govern any dimension of the global education industry. At the very least, we simply walk through all the public commenting opportunities in the week ahead. If we need time more time we typically take it.

You can also dial in using your phone. United States : +1 (408) 650-3123 Access Code: 718-914-669 or our toll-free number 888-748-3670. Note that we also use these login credentials for all other working group and/or special event teleconferences.
We conduct our business in this manner because, apart from the sheer velocity of the standards stream with which we keep pace, a great deal of the content produced by consensus product developers is copyright protected. We do our level best to respect the restrictions standards developers place upon draft material that is open for public review. We cannot distribute draft material but we can discuss specifics on the screen during an online meeting. Some of our draft agendas, and supporting material for breakout teleconferences, are available in advance to our email subscribers only. We do not charge for information that is already publicly available; either by standards developing organizations and/or governments. There is plenty of movement, competition and nuance among standards developers for us to discuss and make decisions upon every day.
We encourage you to subscribe to our email list by sending a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
One need look no further than the innovation-standardization-commoditization cycle in teleconferencing platforms to secure an understanding of why Standards Michigan gives high priority to interoperability standards (as opposed to product standards).
Since there are several teleconferencing platforms; we will keep the GoToMeeting service for daily colloquia but will use other platforms for breakout sessions as the need arises. Because of interoperability problems switching between teleconferencing platforms we recommend using telephone audio to join us.
