Priorities of the Year

Finishing off Director-free

  • At some point, the AB should think about how we work, including group structures, specifically how we divide into WGs, BGs, IGs, and CGs, and the two (or more) flavors of CG – those related to our other groups and operations, and truly Community Groups...
