The JCP Program Office announced  that 2012's first public JCP Executive Committee meeting will take place on Tuesday, June 26, at 8:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time (15:00 UT). You can participate by dialing in to Oracle's global intercall teleconference network ; or, you can attend the meeting using the JCP's Webex account .
If you've never heard of this type of global open JCP EC meeting, you're surely not alone. It's something new, mandated by JSR 348  ("Towards a new version of the Java Community Process"), which was released in final form  this past October, a few weeks after JavaOne. The requirement is that there will be two public JCP Executive Committee meetings each year. So, I'm thinking that, with JSR 348 having been enacted last fall, the upcoming June 26 meeting must be the first ever global public EC meeting.
I plan to attend myself, take lots of notes, then post a blog about the meeting later that day.
If you can't attend (due to time zones, work schedule, or whatever), but wish you could, that's not a huge problem: the meeting will be recorded, and later published at JCP.org , so you'll be able to listen in at your leisure.
The teleconference is scheduled to last an hour.
