Public Can Participate in CIRM Board Meetings at Stanford, Sacramento and Pleasanton

For those of you unable to be personally present at the Tuesday and Wednesday meetings of the board of the $3 billion California stem cell agency, you can hear and participate in the proceedings from remote locations in Sacramento, Pleasanton and at Stanford.

The specific locations can be found on the agenda for the meetings. The remote access is being provided for the convenience of board members whose schedules make it difficult for them to attend the meetings in Los Angeles.

The practice began a few months ago to help avoid the problem of mustering the super-quorum needed for the CIRM board to officially do its business.

Also available is an Internet audiocast of the proceedings – one-way only. No participation is permitted via the audiocast. You can find details of how to gain access to the audiocast here.

For your planning purposes, the Tuesday session usually is devoted mainly to grant reviews, although Chairman Robert Klein is likely to discuss CIRM finances. Other business may come up as well.
