Hi all,

In last week's Credentials CG call, we discussed launching an informal task
force to focus on Educational and Occupational Credentials. I wanted to
follow up with a summary of that proposal.

We have specific goals and use cases outlined in our repo --
https://github.com/w3c-ccg/edu_occ_verifiable_credentials. While the first
goal -- "Unify Open Badges and Verifiable Credentials schema" -- is well
understood and ready to be taken on as a work item, other goals require
more investigation. The task force will therefore investigate and
prioritize these into specific work items.

Our near term plan is to meet once a week outside of the CCG meeting
(similar to the DID calls) in order to better structure our work. We would
eventually like to have regular CCG time, similar to Crypto Tuesdays, but
the specific cadence doesn't have to be decided now.

The steerers of this task force are myself, Kerri Lemoie, and Nate Otto.

Please let us know by February 13 if you have any objections to this
