NW SEM Collaborative Working Group Interest
The NW SEM Collaborative has been a force of change in the SEM Industry over the last decade due to the hard work, roll-up-your-sleeves collaborative mentality and drive of the Working Groups. Working Groups are a voluntary way to add your voice, meet new people, and create content that will benefit a much larger community of practice.

2021 Working Group Requirements:

• Two or more co-leads committed to leading through November 2021:
o Must provide updates to the Leadership Team quarterly
o Must present updates at the Fall Workshop (October)
• Participants interested in supporting the following:
o Discussion on deliberate topic-focused agendas
o Production of some tangible results (white paper, guidance documents, etc.)
• Designated Leadership Team sponsor

By mid-December, the NW SEM Collaborative Leadership Team will identify Working Groups with enough critical mass and contact prospective leaders to form groups. Depending on interest, the Leadership Team may offer alternative opportunities to network and discuss additional topics (for topics that don't have enough momentum to form a full-fledge Working Group).

Where and how would you like to participate in 2021?
Our experience is people have time to effectively participate in one or two groups at once. With this in mind, please limit your ‘Participate’ votes to your top three groups. You can select ‘Please keep me informed’ on as many groups as you would like.
