ESD Alliance committees provide the forum for member companies to address issues of common concern. These issues include export and government related issues, licensing and prevention of software piracy, interoperability and operating systems, and others. The committees are chaired and staffed by subject matter experts from member companies, with the support of the ESD Alliance board of directors.
ESD Alliance member companies are encouraged to participate on these committees to influence and stay abreast of these industry initiatives. If your company would like to have an impact on any of our current committees, or would like to suggest other areas of common interest be addressed by the ESD Alliance, please contact us.
