Dear LC Members,

The Kantara Initiative Leadership Council consists of the chairs and co-chairs of the 11 Working Groups with varied areas of interest, level of participation and longevity.  The Kantara Board of Trustees and the Kantara Leadership Council are in the process of re-examining the different work groups and looking for common themes that cross groups such as user managed access, internet of things, information sharing and others.  This includes looking at groups along themes and whether it make sense to consolidate or re-organize.  We will also be exploring the concept of affiliated clusters of groups

This examination includes a look at the level of participation in groups, the charter and practice of the groups, and sees if they align with the overall goals of the Kantara Initiative in the form of work streams or products.  This may result in the the need to retire and archive groups, consolidate the administrative workstreams, and a renewed emphasis on Leadership Council participation.

In order to make this the most effective and efficient process it requires the effort of all the working groups.  An organization needs a connection to its activities and the Leadership Council is where this collaboration can take place.

As a call to action, we will be scheduling a *mandatory* off-cycle call for work group Chairs representatives to present and examine work group activities and complete the process.  Representatives of the discussion groups will also be invited.

Thanks again everyone,

Pete and Sal
