Working Groups

A working group is a long-term structure administering some activity of the LSC. They should be regularly active, and transparent and accountable to the membership.

If you want to join a working group, please send an email to the working group’s point person and make sure to include the working group’s name in the subject line. Names and emails are available in the "One Big Document" on the LSC Google Drive.

If you’re a point person for a permanent WG, you must commit to the following:

  1. Organize a Rocket Chat channel and Google listserv of everyone on the WG;
  2. Organize on the channel and, if necessary, schedule weekly google calls where everybody on the team gets together and works for a few hours;
  3. Ensure there are minutes of all calls, summaries of major decisions made in chat, and other updates available to the membership on a regular basis.
