Steering group tasks:
All members of the steering group are contributing to the strategic discussions on WINGS’ future aims and activities. Steering group members take turns on things like writing notes and in representing WINGS at different seminars or conferences arranged by others than WINGS. An active participation in the steering group is therefore needed. All members in the steering group take on one or two of the specific roles/tasks listed below to insure a broad participation and a reasonable workload for all. There is no possibility for financial reimbursement for the actual time you devote to the steering group. A symbolic amount has been awarded to the ones handling time consuming tasks. If you are interested in joining the steering group please sign up below and describe what you are willing to contribute with.
