This workgroup is focused on refining the existing governance to better align with ASPR recommendations. The group reviews best practice documents from other coalitions and ASPR-TRACIE. The Governance will better define policies and procedures and define a structure such as an executive or board, core membership and general membership. This committee will consider aligning the document to set the coalition up for success as an independent 501 c(3) or some other business model. This workgroup may later become a policies and procedures workgroup once the main governance is complete.
