Common Impact Data Standard
Meet the members of Common Approach’s first technical committee!
For the Common Approach standards to be truly community-driven, the substantive direction of each standard will be undertaken by technical committees of engaged users and people with expert knowledge.
Common Approach is pleased to announce we have convened our first technical committee for the Common Impact Data Standard! It will serve as a testing ground to help determine the best path forward for further community-driven governance of the Common Approach’s four standards as the number of users grows.
The five individuals joining the technical committee were selected for their expertise and enthusiasm. They will be rolling up their sleeves to develop the next version of the Common Impact Data Standard and support the creation of more user-friendly technical resources. Alongside the Pathfinder Pilot, they will help to formulate and test our processes of user input and participation.
Meet the members of the Common Impact Data Standard technical committee:
