Arlington, VA - February 14, 2000 - The Advisory Commission on Electronic Commerce's Web site was among MuniNet Guide & Review's top sites of 1999. The Commission's Web site,, ranked first in the Electronic Commerce category and was cited as having an "informative, well-maintained Web site."

"The staff at the Commission and in the Virginia Department of Information Technology has worked hard to make the Commission's Web site as informative, easy-to-use, and interactive as possible," said Heather Rosenker, executive director, Advisory Commission on Electronic Commerce. "We are flattered and pleased that the site has been recognized as a valuable resource on the issues surrounding electronic commerce."
