Law Offices of
January 3, 2000
To the Secretary:
I am writing to nominate a client of my law office, Jeffrey B. Vick, to serve as a member of the Advisory Committee on Online Access and Security -- Nomination, P004807. Mr. Vick has deep expertise in the issues being considered, as summarized below, and brings a truly unique perspective and interest that we hope are represented in the Committee's work.
His current business, QUEit Corporation, is developing a consumer-oriented Internet business that will serve as an important alternative to legislative regulation of consumer privacy protection or industry self-regulation.
Jeffrey Vick's Qualifications and Experience:
Mr. Vick is available to meet with the Committee on the dates that have been published, and he is eager to serve the goals of the Committee. The interests he would represent on the Committee are somewhat unusual combination of consumer and commercial perspectives. His company has devised a privacy protection alternative to legislative restrictions or industry self-regulation. QUEit Corporation is a consumer-oriented e-commerce infomediary that puts the consumer in control of his/her private and confidential information.
As the lead developer of Permit.com and as a member of the Board of the Georgia Electronic Commerce Association, both of which have involved Mr. Vick at the forefront of privacy and security issues related to e-commerce, he has solid experience in the public policy dimensions of protecting consumer privacy on the Internet.
I believe Mr. Vick's public policy and private commerce expertise would be a valuable addition to the Advisory Committee on Online Access and Security.
Contact information: Jeffrey B. Vick, QUEit Corporation, 2138 Fairway Circle, Atlanta, GA 30319; (404) 931-8425; email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please let me know if you need any additional information to consider this nomination.
