Working groups are loosely coupled groups of individuals focusing on certain parts of the Education and Curriculum Committee mandate.

If you want a particular group, add it to the list and provide a goal for the group. When it comes time for reporting back to the membership and board, we can all briefly update the activities/status of the working group.
