Action Groups

From IdCommons

Currently a parking lot for straightening out the Working Groups list. There's a proposal on the table to rename Working Groups to "Action Groups," so this may become the main page for these groups.

About Working Groups

Working groups are the fundamental organizational unit of Identity Commons -- see Organizational Structure.

Working Groups must have a charter that is consistent with our Purpose And Principles, and it must appoint a Steward. The Steward serves as the Working Group's representative on the Stewards Council and has a vote on organizational-wide issues, including approving of new Working Groups. Working Groups are welcome to appoint one alternative to serve on the Stewards Council when the main Steward is not available to vote.

An individual may be appointed the Steward of multiple WorkingGroups; however, the individual will only get one vote.
