Advisory Groups - general

Advisory Groups are established to conduct specific activities that contribute to the fulfillment of the Management Team's responsibilities or the organization's mandate. Advisory Groups are considered to be agile in nature, given the changing needs and direction of the organization, and therefore each group is reviewed on an annual basis to determine if the group is still required or if changes in the Terms of Reference are required. Advisory Group's members have specific skills and abilities related to that particular group.

The Content Managers, e-Learning and Tooling User Advisory Group are member based Advisory Groups. All other Advisory Groups have a restricted membership based on specific requirements, with elected members. The discussions of the groups are available through the various Advisory group Confluence sites. For further information regarding nomination process for both member based and elected Advisory groups please contact
