WORKING GROUP. Organization of Conferences & Workshops (coordinator: TC306 chair)
TASK FORCES. Webinars & Elearning (leader: Michele Calvello), TC208/TC306 Collaboration (leader: Muhsin Rahhal)
AMBASSADORSHIPS. Because education concerns all TCs, TC306 is keen on having ambassadors to other ISSMGE committees, ideally in reciprocal fashion. The role of these ambassadors will be to promote/ensure two-way dissemination.
Reciprocal ambassadorships. TC104 to TC306: Sam Divall, TC306 to 104: Marina Pantazidou
TC306 Ambassadors. To TC103: Giovanna Biscontin, to TC106: Katia Bicalho.
