There has been a significant reorganisation within Almamata working

you have the opportunity to be a part of it! Elections for committee

Education coordinator, Campaigns coordinator, Research coordinator,
External Communications coordinator. The job descriptions for each are
at the end of this e-mail. A few of us have taken on these roles

/What happens afterwards - /the new committee will arrange the next
working group committee. Even if you are not elected, then you should

All the very best,
The Almamata working group
