Americans for Computer Privacy Names New Coalition Manager

Washington, DC-- Washington, DC—(March 22)—James T. Dyke, a veteran of several political campaigns and legislative affairs positions, has been named Coalition Manager for Americans for Computer Privacy (ACP). Mr. Dyke replaces Greg Garcia, who recently joined the 3Com Corporation as manager of corporate government affairs.

In his new capacity, Dyke will coordinate activities for ACP, a broad-based coalition that advocates encryption policy reform. ACP is comprised of more than 100 companies, 40 associations and over 3,000 individuals representing financial services, manufacturing, telecommunications, high-tech and transportation, as well as law enforcement, civil- liberty, pro-family and taxpayer groups.

The former manager and treasurer of Dylan Glenn’s congressional campaign in Georgia, Mr. Dyke also served in the Dole/Kemp campaign communications office. He is a former principal with the Weber Merritt Company, a grassroots lobbying firm, and he served in the government affairs office of the Beer Institute.

In announcing the appointment, ACP Executive Director Ed Gillespie cited the value of Mr. Dyke’s campaign experience. "We at ACP are on a campaign to help bring America’s encryption policy in line with the technological realities of today’s global marketplace. Jim’s organizational skills and experience in articulating issues will serve us well as we work to educate policy makers on encryption and the critical need to lift current export restrictions on U.S.-made encryption."  |  © 1998 - 2003 Americans for Computer Privacy  |  Site Credits  |  Privacy Policy
