oCUBE is coordinated by an elected group of members who are part of Standing Committees and/or the Executive Committee. Chairs of Standing Committees (including Ad hoc committees) are part of the Executive Committee. 

We may be an official entity with committee members, but fundamentally, oCUBE is a Community of Practice; we rely on individual members to help keep our community useful and thriving. We welcome and depend upon member ideas, input, and feedback! You can reach our Executive Members by emailing ocubeorg@gmail.com.
