If a timely issue arises, the Executive Committee may appoint a work group. Work groups are shorter term commitments that are focused on a specific project. For work group opportunities that fit your interest and availability, keep an eye on your inbox. MDAFP will include a call for work group volunteers on an as-needed basis in chapter newsletters.
