    (new September 2011)

At the beginning of development of a new standard or revision of an existing standard, SSPC will poll the appropriate Technical Interest Group(s) by e-mail, announce the formation of a new committee, describe the development or revision project. and provide an opportunity for members of the Technical Interest Group(s) and other interested stakeholders to join the new committee as voting or non-voting members.

Travel is NOT required for technical committee membership, but voting members are expected to respond to all committee polls and ballots, and to participate in committee conference calls if possible. Active technical committees usually have one in-person meeting each year in conjunction with SSPC's National Conference.

SSPC committees are moving to an online workspace   starting in September 2011.

Voting Membership

Committee members who hold voting membership make a commitment to participate by responding to committee polls and ballots and participating in committee conference calls. Voting membership is closed at the time of the first formal ballot, and is limited to one voting representative per company. Committees must have a balance of interest among members representing suppliers/producers, purchasers/owners, and general interest (neither purchaser nor supplier). Voting memberships will be assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Non-Voting Membership

Non-voting members are not required to respond to polls and ballots, but will be given the opportunity to comment on drafts during ballot periods and notified of conference calls and meetings. Non-voting members may be added to a committee distribution list at any time.
