The BitCurator Consortium (BCC) is an independent, community-led membership association that serves as the host and center of administrative, user, and community support for the BitCurator environment.


BitCurator Consortium members drive all governance decisions through their participation in the executive council and targeted committees.

The BCC charter was developed in 2014-2015 and revised via a community participation and voting process in 2020:

Executive Council

This elected group provides top-level leadership on critical decisions, formalizes documentation, and ensures ongoing programmatic success. The inaugural executive council was elected in June 2015 and took office in July 2015. During the 2015-2016 charter year, only Charter Members were eligible to run for executive council; thereafter, all members (charter and general) will be eligible to run for executive council.

Start Up Committee

Between July 2014-June 2015, the “Start-up Committee” acted in the capacity of the executive council.
