Task Forces

Administrative Documents Task Force (formed November 2009): Jon Haupt, Michael Rogan, co-chairs; Stephen Luttmann, Jen Riley, Liza Vick, James Zychowicz. [End Page 201]

The Administrative Documents Task Force will consider the types of information published, who needs access, and where this information might be best accessed by its intended audience.
