The MMI Technical Team includes all the MMI members actively supporting the project. These individual have the direct connection to implementations and services provided by the project.

The technical team principals meet via telecon on the first Tuesday of each month. Each team presents a brief report. Strategies for integration, cooperation, and collaboration are discussed, as is the overall direction of the work. The technical team publishes all its agendas and minutes, as well as a Monthly Technical Report.

Many of the Tech Team members are compensated for their time, but all put in time beyond any compensation MMI offers. You are welcome to join the Tech Team and help make MMI an effective force for collaborative metadata approaches!
