Working Group Status

–       someone from Comhub charlotte’s place weds thurs fri 12-2

–       In order to be a wg within the ows structure.

–       Whether or not we stand independent from E&E. Does it make sense to cluster with them or be a subgroup?

–       Also whether or not we’re an operation group – E&E is currently compliant but not an operational group.

–       Spokes is not currently running for WGs in general not just operational.

–        Whether or not we’re part of EE is separate from whether or not we’re compliant.

–       Hannah is going to sort out our compliance.  (mission statement, minutes, attendees)
