Strategic Member Advisory Committee

The Strategic Member Advisory Committee is conceived to be a permanent committee within the OGC organization, designed specifically to provide Strategic Members the opportunity to participate in the strategic planning processes of the Consortium, and to support Consortium operations aimed at achieving the corporation's mission as defined in the bylaws.
The SMAC is a formal structure defined within the framework of OGC's bylaws, designed to operate in parallel with the formal technical decision-making process (Planning Committee and Technical Committee) of the Consortium. The SMAC is the approval body for the Interoperability Program Policy and Procedures.
