Committees 2014

Nomenus Committees and Circles

Upcoming meeting dates can be found on the Nomenus calendar. (If you use Google calendars, this can be merged into yours. Handy!) Many meetings also get a reminder to the CoCo email list. Most start at 7pm. If you’re looking for a meeting and don’t find its date, contact

Recently, most committees have a “live minutes” file. That’s a Google Doc that holds a series of meetings, with the most recent first. It gets updated during the meeting, and is a good place to find agenda and handouts.

To join a meeting, see our conferencing directions. The best results come if you use Skype; establish nomenus.wc as a contact well ahead of time, and then Skype call us at meeting time. Or you can email to let us know to call you; this is also the thing to do if you plan to participate by telephone.

To join a committee, just subscribe to the related Yahoo group and come to the next meeting.
Some committees have a Convener who handles organizational details and is the point of contact, listed below.
