SIM Initiatives

Working Groups 

Working Groups will have specific members and activities related to their scope of work and expected deliverables.  Deliverables will take the form of recommendations and a plan to the SIM Executive Management Team and SIM Planning Team. Members of all Working Groups will be expected to be active, respectful participants in meetings; to consult between meetings with partners and stakeholders, as appropriate, to gather input on specific questions, issues or targeted activities; and to alert SIM leadership about any actual or perceived conflicts of interests that could impede their ability to carry out their responsibilities.
