Perhaps you have noticed that GO::DH has several working groups or perhaps you have not yet explored this part of our site. Whether you already belong to a working group or whether you are thinking of creating one, here are some things you should know about them.
A working group is a group of individuals with a common task or interest and who would like to work with others sharing the same concerns.
You might already know that you want to start a working group or you might be thinking that it would be good to have a place to discuss a particular subject. If you have been wondering about this, if you have had discussions in the GO::DH mailing list, if you think that others are also interested, you could start your own working group.
GO::DH provides working groups with a space for a webpage, a mailing list pertaining to the group and guidance when you need it.
If you decide to create a working group, you must have a group coordinator, a page in GO::DH outlining the interest(s) of the group and the coordinator must report the group’s progress to the GO::DH executive once a month.
If you think that you want to do this, send us a message and we will help you get things started.
