ALD Working Groups
The ALD operates much of its work through smaller working groups to minimise the burden on Executive committee member contributions.  They will be particularly focused on a specific issue or project to deliver.  Each WG also has an additional set of supporters who can be called upon to assist with discussions or elements of the overall workload as required or necessary. Working Group Chairs automatically become ex-officio members of the ALD Executive Committee.
