Q.

7. What are CA79's initial projects?

A.

Our initial projects grew out of the CA79 meeting at the 40th Reunion, and subsequent responses to a form we circulated to people who had expressed interest in CA79. You can learn about these projects, and express interest, on our initial projects page. If you haven't already done so, please also sign up for CA79 here; contacting us about one of these project doesn't automatically sign you up to CA79 as a whole.
   

Q.

8. Who decides the future direction of CA79?

A.

Our work together will be based on participants' interests. The governing structure of CA79 has not been finalized, but it is possible that CA79 will become a nonprofit (501(c)3) entity. Regardless of its legal status, we expect that CA79 will have a leadership group or steering committee. A group is currently studying governance options, and if you are interested in participating in a future steering committee, please indicate that on your profile, or email us at ClassACTHR79+gov@gmail.com.
