U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Michael Powell has appointed the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) to serve as one of 35 members on the FCC's Consumer Advisory Committee, CEA announced.

CEA Senior Director of Regulatory Affairs Julie Kearney will represent CEA on the committee, which makes recommendations to the Commission regarding consumer issues and facilitates the participation of consumers in proceedings before the Commission.

"It is an honor to be chosen as a part of this select group," said Gary Shapiro, CEA president and CEO. "We look forward to serving the FCC in this capacity and are eager to share the views of our more than 2,000 corporate members."

Among the issues the Committee will address in its 2-year term are consumer protection and education and the impact upon consumers of new and emerging technologies, such as digital television (DTV) and cable. Of the groups chosen to serve on the Committee, 10 represent consumer interests, 10 represent disability interests, two represent the interests of state regulators, two represent tribal interests, and 11 represent industry interests.

The first meeting of the Committee will be held on April 29, 2005.
