How to Assist With Standards Development

Join a Working Group

A group of approximately 15 volunteers with training, operations or technical backgrounds works together to research and write a specific standard. The standard may be a new initiative or it may be a revision. The working groups are the creative minds behind the standard. Working groups will generally meet twice a month for a 60-minute conference call and conduct some work offline. If you are interested in joining a working group, be sure you have time in your busy schedule to join the monthly meetings and to conduct some additional work offline. If you have never seen what a standard looks like, check them out on APCO’s Standards for Download page.

APCO International will include notices below when seeking working group members to participate in the creation of ANSI standards.
