A Task Force is a core group of CBA members who are committed to completing a concrete scholarly task, typically publication.
The basic term of a Task Force is five years, during which time the group aims to complete its designated task.
This five-year term may be renewed once if the task requires more time.
After ten years the Task Force may disband or may continue meeting as a Continuing Seminar with a more general focus.Read more: Guidelines for Task Forces
