About us

The Community Council has two key roles. First, to ensure the community is strong and healthy, which can include recruiting, marketing and many external facing activities. Second, this council is responsible for the smooth operation of community activities, including coordinating with other councils, and ensuring the community is collaborative and inclusive.

The Community Council is one of three that govern FOLIO activities.  The other two are the Product Council the Technical Council.
