Organizational Structure – Work Groups

In addition to working through its committee structure, the Partnership has embraced Work Groups as a mechanism for getting more done faster.

Any Committee of the Partnership may establish Work Groups to accomplish its purpose. Work Groups operate informally for an indefinite period of time to accomplish a specific task, such as developing the 321 Report to Congress.

Work Groups are not authorized to allocate Partnership resources or approve projects. To facilitate the collaboration of individuals in Work Groups, they may meet at any time in person, telephonically or operate through e-mail. All work products must be reviewed, discussed and approved at the appropriate public committee. Once its purpose has been accomplished, the Work Group disbands.

Examples of Work Groups are:
