The Developers Alliance works to influence and create an environment that promotes and rewards software driven innovation. The Alliance Policy Steering Committee (PSC), focused on US and European policy respectively, sets the public policy agenda of the Developers Alliance and generally supports our advocacy activity. Participants of the PSC represent the diversity of software powered industries and bring valuable expertise and perspective to the table that ensures our policy objectives are well-informed, balanced, and effective.
Policy Steering Committees are responsible for the:
- Identification of policy topics and potential issues;
- Evaluation of policy objectives, activities, and initiatives; and
- Alignment of policy related activities and programs with the needs and interests of the Alliance membership and the industry.
All Alliance members are eligible to participate in the Policy Steering Committee (PSC). Full members are appointed to both US and European PSCs and associate and startup member representatives are selected by the IPC chair and vice chair.
The PSC is where the goals of small businesses and large companies meet and form the Developers Alliance innovation agenda. Each PSC participant is invested in the creation of an environment that rewards innovation and is committed to empowering the global developer workforce their companies depend on.
