Board Charge

The Advisory Board is the organizational body that advances DCMI's work through engagement with DCMI community members and liaising with other initiatives that have shared, metadata-related interests. The Board is responsible for overseeing the programmatic work of the Initiative including conferences and meetings, education, publication, and outreach activities, and promoting DCMI. For the Initiative, the Advisory Board serves as the primary advisory body for DCMI for matters pertinent to the Board's charge and also as a broad-based sounding board for DCMI on issues deemed of significant importance to the Initiative, its members, and stakeholders.
