IMHO defining criteria to limit membership is counter to HL7 policy.  Members are free to join any work group except those groups chartered by the board or TSC.

Hi Marc,

I am new to HL7 processes, so I do not yet know what is the exact
procedure for forming and joining an HL7 work group, but I'm looking
into it.  Stan Huff, who now chairs the HL7 board, said he would let me
know.  I modeled the draft charter after other HL7 work group charters
that I found online, and they did not include those criteria, so I
assume that there are other documents -- perhaps standard across all HL7
work groups -- that cover those aspects.
