Specifically it will:

Membership appointed by the President, but to include the Chair of the CMIA or delegate, at least one other CMIA member, the EB liaison to CMIA, and four other members, representing a wide a range as possible of subdisciplines. The Chair will be the CMIA chair or CMIA member, with the possibility of a co-chairship with another member. The Working Group will create a plan (including a schedule) for completing the specific activities listed here. It may establish a group of AAA member experts with whom to consult.

Term: two years.
