The committee meets monthly by attendance at one or more venues, or from home. The locations are connected by electronic conferencing (currently audio only and internet dependent). In addition, there are frequent exchanges by email, electronic documents, Facebook group or by Facebook messaging.
The Committee works within the Rules of both TEERA and AERA.
