Have Your Say

PACC takes an active role in representing members’ views about legislation and public policy changes that can affect privacy and access rights and practice.

PACC also provides opportunities for members and others to share their insights and perspectives. We are interested in articles that relate to access-to-information, privacy, data governance and data protection, and we welcome diverse perspectives for the two primary communication vehicles the PACC Blog and The Winston Report.

Please review the Guest Post Guidelines, Sample Submission Guidelines, and the Submission Guidelines for The Winston Report and ensure that your content aligns with PACC objectives.
