# Community Oversight Council Last updated: 2023-01-16 URL for this page: https://hackmd.io/@investinopen/community-oversight-council URL for this site: https://hackmd.io/@investinopen/how-we-work ## What is the Community Oversight Council? The Invest in Open Infrastructure (IOI) Community Oversight Council (COC) was established to further transparency and accountability of open infrastructure services, providers, funders and supporters. The purpose of the COC is to surface themes, trends, and issues in the open research and scholarship infrastructure sector and adjacent spaces, to provide a collaborative, safe forum for discussions, and to advise and inform IOI staff and Steering Committee on mechanisms to ensure that IOI’s work is serving our community. The COC is an independent, non-voting governing body of IOI. *Update: We have announced the pausing of the Community Oversight Council's activities from 15 September 2022, as we reflect on this format, our experience in the past year, and how we’d like to move forward.* [*>> Read the Charter of the Council*](https://hackmd.io/JCVcTIGmQdSubcbSwanBDg) ## Past members | Name | Role | Start | End | Affiliation | |-|-|-|-|-| | Sarah Lamdan | Co-Chair | September 2021 | September 2022 | CUNY Law | | Shea Swauger | Co-Chair | September 2021 | September 2022 | University of Colorado Denver | | Jennie Rose Halperin | Core Council member | September 2021 | September 2022 | Library Futures | [*>> See members biographical notes*](https://hackmd.io/@investinopen/governance-bios) ## Meeting schedule and notes ### Upcoming meetings None. ### Past meetings [*>> See summaries of past meetings*](https://hackmd.io/@investinopen/community-oversight-meetings) --- This page first published: 2022-04-06 ###### tags: `community-council` `governance` --- <a rel="license" href="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/"><img alt="Creative Commons License" style="border-width:0" src="https://i.creativecommons.org/l/by/4.0/88x31.png" /></a><br />This work is made available under a <a rel="license" href="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/">Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License</a>.
