I joined the last Board call midway through the discussion about the researcher advisory board/WG. A few thoughts, even though I didn't hear the initial goals.
IMO the main goal would be to encourage researchers to use CVE, either themselves directly or as a part of their reporting/disclosure processes (e.g., remind, ask, motivate vendors to become CNAs). Sub-goals might include awareness, education (how to), and problem/dispute resolution. No concerns with creating a board or WG, I think the title of the group does matter some and agree we should seek a representative person or set of persons as chair(s). Periodic meetings are one way, but not the only way, to do things. Getting ahead a bit, I could see this group managing a git repo where researchers (anyone really) can file issues. Transparency (the Program is open to receiving problem reports and the resolutions are published) goes a long way, and builds up a body of knowledge (e.g., read the closed issues before opening a new one). This sort of activity doesn't have to be limited to periodic meetings. Regards, - Art
