RISC-V International Governance

RISC-V International is governed by its Board of Directors. The Board is composed of Directors elected to represent all classes of membership to ensure we offer a strategic voice as all levels. In addition, the Technical Steering Committee (TSC) provides leadership to our technical initiatives in setting long term strategy, forming tactical committees and work groups, and approving technical deliverables for ratification or release. RISC-V International also supports and drives ad hoc and standing groups to pursue specific industry, geographic, and strategic interest through a variety of constructs. Our aim is to guide and facilitate the broadest and most effective collaboration for the benefit of our member community.
