Volunteer positions: Working Group

We are doing a call-out for new members and volunteers. Members join the Working Group, attend monthly meetings and typically put in about ten hours a month. Volunteers can have a specific focus and provide assistance and help in particular portfolios. Each portfolio is led by a Working Group member, and we all work closely across our portfolios to achieve our goals. We are particularly interested in new members with an interest in the following portfolios below and have provided a downloadable PDF copy of each role’s position description.
