As a key part of their funded activities, the NNA-CO will facilitate the formation, implementation, and outputs of four Convergence Working Groups.

The NNA-CO has established an initial set of Convergence Working Group functions and goals, but many elements of the Convergence Working process are intentionally not yet fully defined to allow for community input. A concept document outlines foundational aspects of the CWG design, provides a potential roadmap for elements yet undefined, and invites open community comment for finalizing the CWG process.

Methods for engaging and submitting comments include:

  • Provide your comments via the Google Form;
  • Email comments with the heading “CWG Input” to;
  • Comment directly on the document; or
  • Attend an open comment and discussion session:
    • Thursday, 24 February 2022, 12:00-1:00 p.m. AKST/2:00-3:00 p.m. MST/4:00-5:00 p.m. EST. Register to attend.
