A W3C community group is the ideal place to co-ordinate the OpenActive standards work because it provides an open, neutral environment that brings together people from across a sector.
We encourage everyone who is interested in contributing to our work to join the group.
All members of the group are covered by a contributor agreement. This agreement ensures that the outputs we create are open for anyone to use.
The sign-up process
Signing up is a two step process.
- Create a W3C account. This account allows you to join any number of community groups. You will probably need to add information about your organisation, unless you’re joining as an individual member
- Once you are signed in with your W3C account, you can then join the group. There is a “Join or Leave This Group” button on the community group homepage.
During the second step you will be asked if you are joining on behalf of your organisation or as an individual.
If you join as an individual there is an additional approval step. As this step is carried out by the W3C team, it may take a bit of time to process. But if you are joining on behalf of your organisation you will be immediately added to the group
Once you have joined the group you will also automatically be added to the mailing list.
We encourage everyone that joins the group to introduce themselves by sending a short email to the mailing list. This will let other members know you have joined and is an opportunity to outline any areas of our work that you are interested in.
Additional information about how to join the group can be found in the W3C community group FAQ.
