The OpenStack Technical Committee is one of the governing bodies of the OpenStack project. You can find more information about it, such as the list of its current members or its governance charter, on the OpenStack TC governance website at https://governance.openstack.org/tc/ . It meets weekly in an open meeting in the #openstack-meeting IRC channel on Freenode. See the governance website for details on how to propose governance changes.
