I've been appointed to Kaohsiung City Government's Bilingual Living Environment Commission, a 19-strong committee whose duties include the correcting of bilingual signs, and the standardizing of the English names of government units and tourist attractions. The work is very similar to what I've been doing from time to time for the central government's Research, Development & Evaluation Commission.
Eleven members are civil servants; eight are outsiders. I'm not sure how often we'll be meeting.
