  • will be revised by the OSHG Development Committee in the future.
  • If you want to be on a committee, contact Don Smith in Kitely or
  • Indicate your interest in comments to this blog, with your contact info.

              1. I have interest in serving the main committee as well as some subcommittees. I am not able to determine which Don Smith on G+ is the correct one. Please add me to your circles so I know who you are thanks!

                Is there a website for this effort where I can see the complete organization, mission, objectives, etc?
