Leadership

InCommon Community

InCommon Advisory Committees Start New Terms in 2022

InCommon’s advisory committees and working groups provide leadership opportunities for community members who contribute their insights, expertise, and talents within Identity and Access Management. From these collaborations, we develop best practices, implement technologies, identify challenges, work to fill gaps, and strengthen relationships with colleagues and peers.
