This wiki includes information and links to other resources that may be of value to new members of the W3C's Advisory Committee (AC).

AC Reps and W3C Staff: please feel free to Create (e.g. new pages), Update, and Delete information in this document as well as its document subtree!

Additional information for Members is available in the Member home page and specifically for new AC reps, see the Team's Advice for New AC Reps.

Some of these resources are public; others require a Member account.

W3C Groups

Advisory Committee

  • AC Directory; contains a list of every AC member including the AC rep's name, e-mail address and phone number
  • AC Rep Introductions; introductions by new AC reps and/or new Consortium embers. All new AC reps and new Consortium members are strongly encouraged to send an introduction to the AC Forum mail list.
  • Group Participants per Member; for each W3C Member you can get a list of the groups they formally participate. (Although most of the data is accurate, some of the data is out of date e.g. includes workshop Program Committees that are no longer active).
  • How to Create a W3C Member Account; AC reps can use this service to create a Member account for others. Alternatively, interested members can use the form directly. AC reps will get a confirmation email when any new member is approved.
  • Open Questionnaires; periodically, AC reps will be asked to provide advice on various proposals such as Should WG X be started?. The My Questionnaires service is the entry point for providing advice and this service includes a history of all of the questionnaires previously submitted.
  • Accounts per Member; AC reps can get a list of all of their employees' accounts, including a way to delete account (for example if some employees have left the company)

Meetings

    • Upcoming AC Meetings:
      • 2014 June 8-10 - Cambridge, MA US; Agenda @TBD
      • 2014 October 27-31 - Santa Clara, CA US; Agenda as well as specific meeting dates for the AC is @TBD

E-Mail

    • AC Mail List Archives - two mail lists are dedicated to AC reps and both lists have a archive:
      • w3c-ac-members - used by W3C staff (aka 'The Team') as a formal communication channel to AC reps; AC reps cannot send e-mails to this list
      • w3c-ac-forum - this list has several uses including: AC reps use it to communicate with each other; AC reps use it to communicate to the W3C Staff; W3C staff make some informal announcements to AC reps
    • New Work Announcements; self-subscribe-able and archived mail list used to announce all proposed new work including new Community Group proposals

Financial Data

Calls for AC Rep Input and Feedback

Some AC reps are keen to see improvements in various W3C process and services. All AC reps are strongly encouraged to provide input on such improvements and to help drive positive changes. Here are some of the activities that need AC rep input:

  • Events Process - an initiative to improve W3C's events processes (such as Workshops, Meetups, and Conferences) by refining the Problem Statement, defining Use Cases and Requirements, Identifying High Priority issues, etc.
  • Dashboards - many AC reps would like the W3C Staff to create various dashboards to facilitate internal communication and information sharing. This initiative is focused on refining the Use Cases and Requirements, Identifying the High Priority UCs, etc.
