Series V: Country Coordination Groups (Co-Groups), 1978-1995

Country Coordination Groups (co-groups) are volunteer groups that have expertise on a particular country or region. This program is also known as the Country Specialist Program. These groups help to manage the country-related work of AIUSA and act as liaisons on casework issues among local groups, sections and the International Secretariat.
