Founding members include the leading companies from a diverse range of business sectors: AccuQuote, Cisco Systems, The Coca-Cola Company, Dell, Gemstar-TV Guide, General Motors, Kaiser Permanente, Microsoft, Nokia, SAP, and Wells Fargo. The Blog Council exists as a forum for executives to meet one another in a private, vendor-free environment and share tactics, offer advice based on past experience, and develop standards-based best practices as a model for other corporate blogs. Representing thought leaders from corporate departments as diverse as corporate communications, global communities, marketing, and customer service, the Blog Council's advocacy role is meant to function as a collective voice in support of responsible, ethics-based corporate blogs.
