InCommon, like its parent organization Internet2, is governed and driven by its members and participants. InCommon was created by research and higher education institutions and serves those organizations and their commercial and corporate partners.
The community consists of anyone from any of those organizations who wishes to participate and contribute. The InCommon Steering Committee sets policy for the organization. Advisory groups like the InCommon Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) and the Community Trust and Assurance Board (CTAB) provide guidance and technical expertise in developing, expanding, and maintaining InCommon services. All of these groups consist of volunteers from among all InCommon participants. See the leadership page for more information about these groups.
At the core are working groups, chartered for specific purposes and to explore technologies and services that may either affect or benefit InCommon participants. A list of working groups is available on the wiki.
