Working mode of the AMP Advisory Committee (AC)

Goal of the AC

Make AMP a great web citizen.


Members are representing themselves, not their employer.

Conflict of interest

Members should disclose who their employer or clients are to avoid conflicts of interest, via a private mailing list if necessary.

Members should recuse themselves from decisions where proprietary interests might interfere with their judgment.

Working mode

All proceedings are public.

AC advice to the Technical Sterring Committee (TSC) is non-binding.


The AC has a facilitator. Their role is to help organize discussions and drive them towards consensus.

The facilitator organizes meetings, publishes the meeting agenda, keeps a tab on the open issues, etc.

The facilitator generally acts as a liaison with the TSC.

The facilitator is responsible for making sure everyone feels welcomed and heard, and enforcing the code of conduct if necessary.



  • Async communication.
  • GitHub-based.
  • Allows for varying degree of involvement.

In practice:

  • Discuss GitHub issues filed on this repository (from fellow AC members, the TSC, working groups (WG), end-users, etc.).
  • Review of intent to implement issues (I2I) either on the I2I itself or in a specific issue.
  • Advice and discussions on topics brought up by the TSC.
  • Publication of “opinions” on specific topics (audience: TSC, collaborators, but also platform implementers, devs, etc.).
  • Sub-committees to work on specific projects (proceedings must also be public).
  • Video conferences and calls as needed, potentially in sub-committees (to account for the size of the AC). Notes are public.
  • Liaison with standards organizations and groups (W3C, WHATWG, WICG, IETF, etc.).
  • Two single-day face to face meetings per year, aligned (if possible) with AMP Conf and AMP Contributor Summit.

Decision making

Consensus-based as described in the governance policy.

Inspired by W3C TAG, MDN PAB OSI Board, Web Platform WG, and Node.js Comm Comm.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
