Working groups around each of the community building pillars were formed during the the Toronto Community Building Meetup last March 2013. These working groups will meet regularly to create plans and recommendations for the larger community building group and present their work during the next in-person CBT meetup.
The working group model is meant to be flexible, so groups will meet only on an as needed basis. This page is organized to indicate which groups are currently active. If you're interested in getting involved with a group, please reach out to the members listed for each—even if a group isn't currently active.
