Definitely ask your management that you be there. As Randy noted, you can't invite yourself. They may want you there for some, all or none of the meeting, depending on the content. What is said by them may not be as important to others as it is to you and your function. That is why you want to know first hand what is said. But again, if you have your manager there they may not want you. (Reporting to the committee as was originally posted rules this out, in that instance.)
As CO I was always there and always took a lot of good notes. You'll be referring to these as you progress through clean up, periodic audits and when you get your next notice that they're coming back. Three things are certain, they always come back, they review their notes before they do and they don't like seeing the same error again.
