Is there anything Core could have provided during this time that would have helped your group with its work?
Since Core was founded and there’s been some changes, it would be helpful to have more explicit ideas of expectations for the IGs.

We would like the vice-chairs added to the IG Connect group so that they are in the loop for any policy change.
