These are exciting times in impact measurement!

We are looking for community champions to join our very first Technical Committee!

A central premise of the Common Approach’s work is that impact measurement should be community-driven. 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. 

Our inaugural Technical Committee will focus on the Common Impact Data Standard.

The goal of the Common Impact Data Standard is to simplify the sharing and analysis of impact data, including data from different sources, organizations, and software. 

At this time, we are focused on recruiting five to eight experts in data standards or software, to help draft the next version of the Data Standard and formalize the processes for and responses to community input.

Apply to help shape the future of the Common Approach to Impact Measurement! We are looking to hear from diverse candidates with an interest and expertise in data standards, ontologies, web and software product development, and data ethics and governance.

The time commitment for committee members will be the equivalent of 15 days (120 hours) per year. This translates to just over eight hours per month (which will be spread over multiple days). All technical committee members are eligible for an annual stipend of up to $3000, paid quarterly.

The application process is simple! Interviews will be conducted on a rolling basis beginning March 23rd.

We received some great feedback that has helped us to adjust and clarify the time requirements and opportunities for a stipend for those who serve on this committee. These details have been updated in the full posting!
