Working Groups

Below are the Working Groups that MIH is calling for participation from the Contributor Members. Please note that only Contributor Members can join Working Groups. Contributor Members will receive an application form to the below Working Groups.

Working Group Process

  • Contributor Members to fill out the Working Group Application Form (please check the thank you email or MIH Slack for link)
  • Once a Working Group reaches 3~5 interested members, Technical Committee will host a meeting with the interested members
  • One can nominate itself to be the Group Chair, but will need to propose a Group Charter and gain support from the other members
  • Technical Committee will approve the final charter and appoint the Working Group Chair
