OASIS Technical Committee membership is held by a person (not an organization), is not transferable, and assumes current membership in OASIS. When joining a TC, a person chooses to participate as either an Observer or TC Member based on the participation and visibility benefits they desire.

The TC Observer role enables OASIS members to monitor a TC’s work without being publicly associated with it. Visibility is based on the level of OASIS membership held by your employer (Premier, General Sponsor, or Contributor) or by yourself (Individual or Associate).
