Working Groups 

Working groups are groups or individuals working directly with a steering committee member on a key objective.  These members would attend meetings and/or work on activities designated by the working group as essential to achieving their objective.  Their time commitment may be short-term or long-term depending on the needs of the working group.


Networks are community level groups or individuals working on, or interested in, a similar issue. They may include those who are participating in common activities and who benefit from shared experiences, knowledge or common practices. Those who become members of a network will receive targeted information related to the area of interest.
