Hi all, 

I have a small clarification that we might not have reflected accurately in the announcement below: if you are already part of the CCWG-Accountability (for Work Stream 1), then you do not need to sign up again. This call for volunteers is directed at new folks who have not engaged with the CCWG-Accountability before.
