Evergreen Committees & Interest Groups

Participating on an Evergreen committee or interest group is a great way to get involved in the Evergreen community.

With the exception of the Oversight Board, there are no formal membership requirements to become involved on a committee or interest group. You just need to attend meetings, actively participate on a list, or volunteer where help is needed.
