Forming a One Guild Working Group
- Any member or group of members can request formation of a Working Group.
- Working Groups may be affinity-based.
- Applicants should articulate the following:
- Proposed Working Group leads (Working Groups can have two to four leads. Staggered leadership. Group leads rotate every two years.)
- Clearly defined goal and scope of activities
- Clearly defined audience (e.g., all PGA members, specific cohort(s) of under-represented / under-served within PGA)
- Application Review and Approval by One Guild Chairs on rolling basis. (Must have at least 10 members in group to move forward)
Working Group Expectations
- Working Groups are responsive to member interests and needs. They are self-organizing.
- Working Groups must commit to some level of engagement with its members through meetings, workshops, roundtables, etc.
- Working Group leads work with the PGA office to facilitate scheduling meetings, info into newsletter, organizing events, etc.
- A member may not simultaneously lead or chair two separate PGA Working Groups or Committees.
- Working Groups are not permanent standing committees of the Guild, and therefore, do not have independent budgets.
- They may request budget from One Guild Chairs as needs arise in order to ensure opportunistic access to all equally.
With the exception of budgets, Working Group leads must follow the same basic guidelines as Committee chairs as set forth in the policy manual.
