Scope and Content Note

Meeting files of the Technical Assistance Advisory Committee consist exclusively of agendas and minutes for each meeting date. Established in June 1999, the Technical Assistance Advisory Committee served both the State Commission and each of the county commissions dealing with early childhood development. As its name suggests, the Committee provided advice on technological matters, such as how to best use videoconferencing, the Internet, and other emerging technologies in the delivery of services to children and their families. For its first several months, the Committee appears to have spent most of its time discussing the design and functions of the State Commission's web site.
