Standing Committee

Members of the DSSG Standing Committee (DSSG-SC) plan the group’s activities, teach workshops, organize events, and, in coordination with the DSSG Oversight Committee, articulate the broader, long-term strategy of the group. DSSG-SC members attend bi-weekly meetings and participate in some of the sub-committees that develop and supervise the group’s initiatives.
