The board's first mission was to cull through more than 200 IAPP Privacy Summit 07 session proposals submitted for programming consideration. The Education Advisory Board carefully reviewed the proposals and helped the IAPP craft programming for the IAPP Privacy Summit 07.

The board identified several priorities, including offering Summit attendees sessions on third-party relationships and auditing; government efforts to collect personal information from private-sector databases; and direct access to regulators - including Deborah Platt Majoras, Chairman of the Federal Trade Commission and Richard Thomas, Information Commissioner of the UK, two of the keynote speakers.

The Summit is expected to draw the largest gathering of privacy pros in the world, March 7-9, to the Renaissance Washington DC Hotel.
