OpenOakland is a non-profit civic innovation organization that brings together coders, designers, data geeks, journalists, and city staff to collaborate on solutions to improve the lives of Oaklanders. We are part of Code for America’s Brigade program and hold frequent events for community, local government and tech folks to work together. Our focus is on both community technology and open government projects that we support through community partnerships and engaged volunteers.
Our organization is led by an elected steering committee and bylaws. We are fiscally sponsored by Code for America, a 501(c)3 nonprofit.
Hack Night Lead:
A member from each active project team should also attend the Steering Committee meeting each month. It doesn’t need to always be the same person, but it should be part of the core team. All OpenOakland members are welcome to sit in on leadership meetings. Responsibilities for each steering committee role is defined in the OpenOakland Steering Committee Bylaws.
