Review Team,

For purposes of organizing further the 4 work streams, the Chair and Vice Chairs offer the following:

The Chair and Vice Chairs will offer to act as "facilitators" of the respective work streams.  As such, they will assist and support the substantive work of the 4 respective working groups.  After discussion, we are assigned as follows:

Work Stream 1 (ATRT1) - Brian

Work Stream 2 (SSR) - Avri

Work Stream 3 (WHOIS) - Alan

Work Stream 4 (overarching) - Lise

To be clear, the Chair and Vice Chairs are not self nominating to become leaders of the work streams.  Rather, we are making a call to the RT members to volunteer to lead a work stream for which you have volunteered.  The leader (or co-leaders) will be expected to organize and "drive" the work of a given work stream working collegially with their fellow work stream volunteers.  Please note, each working group will have to draft recommendations and a report that supports those recommendations.  Therefore, "authors" who are willing to draft are critical.  The leader need not be the author of work stream report and recommendations.  This is noted to make clear that both leadership and drafting volunteers will be needed.  

Also, we recommend that a separate email address be set up for each of the 4 work streams.  Each would include only the members of the specific work stream (not the entire ATRT2) and be publicly available. This would keep the volume of email to the full ATRT2 email list at a reasonable level once the work begins in earnest.  If a given ATRT2 member wants to receive emails from a work stream that he or she did not volunteer for, we could add him or her to that list.  In any event, all 4 email lists would be publicly accessible at the ATRT2 site.  If there is a better approach to this proposed segmentation, we are happy to consider it.  Thank you.
