Just in case there is any confusion, Teitac activities are governed by
the operating protocols agreed to back in September:
So yes, the public -- including "508 coordinators from various agencies"
is allowed to be there for face-to-face meetings.
The most relevant paragraphs from the above document:
7. Subcommittees. Subcommittees may be formed to address specific
issues within the scope of the advisory committee's responsibilities.
Subcommittees are open to anyone although balance among interests should
be maintained. Subcommittees may meet at the same time the full
committee meets, or in between full committee meetings. However,
subcommittees are encouraged to meet in between full committee meetings.
Subcommittees may offer recommendations to the committee. However,
subcommittees are not authorized to make recommendations for the
committee. In subcommittees, anyone in attendance can participate.
Subcommittee leadership and methods of work shall be decided by the
subcommittee. Subcommittee meetings shall be conducted in a manner that
is accessible to all those in attendance. Chairs of subcommittees shall
be members of the committee. Subcommittees shall publish their meeting
schedules and other work mechanisms in advance to the public.
If anyone has a concern that the protocols are not being followed,
please let Tim Creagan know about it ASAP.
