Standards Workgroup

The ARMER Standards Workgroup falls under either the Operations and Technical Committee or the Interoperability Committee. The workgroup continually works on standards and occasionally on Best Practices Guides to make updates as necessary. Standards calls will occur Monday mornings from 9:30 to 11:00 a.m.   When working on Best Practices Guides, calls will occur on Fridays from 9:30 to 11:00 a.m.  All are free to join.

If you would like to be involved with the Workgroup, please email ECN Standards Coordinator Cathy Anderson at
