Committees and Other Organizations within the Alliance
The Board creates committees and working groups to facilitate the functioning of the Alliance. There are several long-term committees designed to handle major areas of interest, which may include Development, Education, Emerging Technologies, Metrics, Marketing, Membership, and Research.
The Board can also create ad-hoc committees/working groups/task forces as needed to oversee organizational initiatives when necessary. Participation on committees and ad-hoc groups is open to Promoters and Contributors unless otherwise specified in the committee charter and approved by the Board of Directors.
Committee chairs may be individuals from the Board; although the position is not exclusive to Board members, but is limited to Promoter, unless otherwise appointed by the Board.
