Work groups have a more narrow focus than committees. They have clear objectives and a shorter time frame for accomplishing their objectives. Whereas committees are designed to focus on defined activities of NSGIC, work groups are formed to address a specific task that has a limited duration. The duration of work groups is typically less than one year. Work groups have clearly defined deliverables and outcomes. They can be created by the President and/or the Board as necessary.
All NSGIC work groups established prior to 2013 have successfully completed their work. Per the Committee Restructuring Plan, select work groups were elevated to committee status and the remaining work groups were retired. As new work groups are established, they will be identified on this page.
