Policy areas or work streams in SVS

Following recent discussions at the 2016 AGM by the SVS committee it was suggested that work areas be created with SVS committee members taking a lead and co-opting two or three SVS members to assist in the development of these areas including attending meetings. The aim is hopefully to incorporate members with experience and newer members who can build resilience for the future of SVS.

Regular teleconferences are held by the SVS committee to which the groups can provide updates.

If you would like to contribute to a group please email the SVS committee member by the end of February 2017 saying briefly what your interest is and what you hope to contribute to the group.
