The W3C Team consists of the W3C paid staff and W3C
Fellows, all led by the Chief Executive Officer and the Director. If you
would like to join the Team, and your employer* is a
W3C Member that can pay your salary while you work for W3C, please apply to
become a W3C Fellow. You can make a world of difference. Fellows have access
to Team communications, are full-fledged W3C Team members, and are given
responsibilities that are important to the success of the Consortium.
