The COMMON Americas Advisory Council (CAAC) is looking for new members.

The CAAC is a select group of individuals who represent the diverse membership of the COMMON community. As the name states, the CAAC acts as an advisory group to IBM.  Members of CAAC review product enhancement requests, providing IBM with important user feedback to help prioritize these requests. IBM also reviews and discusses IBM's strategies and plans with CAAC, requesting input and advice.

Members of CAAC participate in monthly calls, as well as two face-to-face meetings per year. This is a unique opportunity to help shape the direction of the IBM i Portfolio of products and IBM Power Servers.
