We felt it is still manageable this way at the current time. Yes, if we grow
the number of working groups we would need to reappraise. The intention of
naming two directors for each group is so that at least one hopefully can
always be present at WG meetings. Having a board member present should help
the two way decision process and keep everyone within the board and working
group best informed.
