The HPDC is a member-driven organization and our work depends on the expertise and experience of volunteers on our committees.  So the first step is to become a member – visit our membership page for more information 

The Technical Committee solicits applications from interested members each year.  The application process and requirements can be found here [insert link]

Subgroup members are selected on the basis of their expertise in the specific topic to be addressed.  A call for applicants can be issued at any time for these groups.  Members will receive notification when a call for applicants is open.

The Advisory Panels are open to all members.  While they do not play a direct role in development of the standard, they provide useful feedback and recommendations to the Technical Committee.  Evolution of the standard from version 1.0 to version 2.0 was based in part on feedback from the Manufacturers Advisory Panel; the Manufacturers Advisory Panel and the newly-formed User Advisory Panel will continue to play that role.
