Working Groups are more formalized with annual work plans, deliverables, and regular calls and meetings, while Interest Groups convene based on need.

Best Practices for Sending Listserv Messages:

  1. Use subject lines that are concise and informative.

  3. Advocacy messages are welcome, but please avoid partisan political statements.
  4. Please check that information and messaging are evidence based before sharing to avoid the spread of misinformation.
  5. Be conscious of replying individually vs. replying to all.

We encourage you to share:

  • Requests for technical advice

Please do not share job postings to our listservs. Paying CORE Group members may post jobs to our Jobs Postings webpage as a membership benefit; nonmembers may contact Arafat Safi at about paid job postings or to inquire about membership.
