— Circles —

^ Members, share your interests by taking our poll

Circles are areas of interest that may become a team or future action. 

  • If an action opportunity arises related to a topic, we’ll let you know.
  • Circles remain dormant until a member volunteers to serve as a lead at which point it becomes a committee.
