ITEGA-sanctioned services will operate under the guidance of the Information Trust Exchange Governing Association (ITEGA), an initially U.S.-based, 501(c)(3), public-benefit, non-profit organization, established Jan. 30, 2017.
ITEGA’s structure has been evolving since 2015. It is intended that it will be eventually overseen by a self-perpetuating, 27-member board with staggered terms and a global outlook.
The ITEGA may choose to create a downstream for-profit company to operate aspects of the ITE ecosystem; more likely it will choose to contract with independent for-profits for services.
ITEGA will become a member organization, with founding roles for Publishing Members, Contributing Members, Technology Members, Participating Members, Supporting Members and at-large members.
It is anticipated that any organization or individual enrolling the public or exchanging value across ITEGA-compliant services will be expected to join a class of membership, paying dues sufficient, in the aggregate, to cover just the cost of ITEGA’s governance and research-and-development roles.
