Hi All,

A new process for managing TDWG subgroups and standards was accepted  
at the St Louis meeting in October. This new process defines Interest  
Groups which are persistent entities that spawn Task Groups which are  
ephemeral. You can read about this in more detail on the Process Wiki.


Previous subgroups now need to propose new charters following a new  
format if they wish to be constituted as Interest Groups under the  
new system. I  have drafted a charter for the TAG Interest Group and  
would welcome any comments before submitting this to the Executive  
Committee. You can fined PDF and Word versions of it on the wiki.


I don't believe there is anything controversial in here but you may  
think otherwise. Is so please place you comments on  
NewCharterComments on the wiki or mail me an edited version of the  
word document - with track changes turned on.

The wiki is looking dated and needs a good spring cleaning which I am  
just embarking on. Please let me know if there is anything that you  
think should be included.

All the best,
