There have been recent discussions about reinvigorating various
OpenStreetMap Foundation Working Groups.
Recent board minutes indicated the membership management would be
moved from a board position membership secretary to a working group
Michael Collinson spoke  of his interest in seeing new people and
more people participating in Working Groups, based on his experiences
and earlier work by Matt Amos.
I wrote recently about who might join a working group, why, and
what they might be able to offer a working group. Shortly after I
published that, Jono Bacon tweeted an image that struck me as helpful,
inspirational and super appropriate for OpenStreetMap. So, I wrote
about that as well. 
In addition to the new membership WG, there will be announcements for
others. Michael Collinson spoke of the need for more participation in
LWG and if I remember correctly MT. There will be at least one
more, shortly, but it isn't mine to announce. :-)
Best regards and happy mapping,
You do not have to be an expert, or know all of the answers, to be
valuable to a working group. You can join armed only with enthusiasm,
though organizational skills and communication skills are a benefit.
