Question: How many groups should each person in this role be responsible for? I guess as many as they possibly can? Should there be a max?
Role: Group subsite strategist [moved to strategy]
Works with groups to develop web presence.
Role: Info liaison
Ensures that when the Info desk learns about a new committee, they create a corresponding group on the site and add an active member as an admin to it. Reports feedback from Info back to the IWG.
Question: Is this actually going to be the process? Perhaps we should have a dedicated internet person in Info or another group(s)?

Role: Public liaison
