The ARC XR Operations Board is answerable to the governance of the ARC and in part to the XR Strategy Group. The purpose and responsibility of the board is to have the space utilised for good work that justifies the investment in the ARC, and that access is available on a transparent, fair, and equitable basis. It will create and manage a proposal process for activity coming into the space. The board meets monthly and all board members have a responsibility for communications to their representative body.
