OpenStreetMap US Committees

OpenStreetMap US Committees are forming now! There has been a lot of interest in volunteering in the US in addition to mapping, and committees are a great way to work together to support and grow our community. An outline of committee roles will be provided by OpenStreetMap US, but members will be encouraged to develop their own definitions, meeting schedules, budgets and terms of reference. For now, we are going to pilot the idea through the Code of Conduct committee, but other committees are planned including tech & events! Please indicate your interest in a committee in the preferred table below and we will be in touch!
