IMHO we really should get involved with this. My suggestion is that any who 
are interested in participating, say so on the list. Participating EdLUG 
members form a subgroup "The EdLUG CISAG Consultation Group". This subgroup 
can then be formally constituted, with defined membership, committee etc. to 
be decided by the participants. Subgroup members communicate off-list with 
each other. A designated member of the subgroup posts a monthly update to the 
EdLUG list.

Communications of the subgroup with the outside world would be as "The EdLUG 
CISAG Consultation Group" (or any alternative name with a clever acronym), 
but not as "EdLUG".

I hereby express my interest in participating.
