Members, Invited Experts, and Team *must* rejoin Working Group

As you have seen, the new charter for the Accessibility Guidelines 
Working Group (AG WG) is now in effect. Note it is no longer named the 
Web Content Accessibility Guidelines Working Group (WCAG WG), so please 
try to update your mental label.

Because the charter adds deliverables related to the W3C Patent Policy, 
*all* participants must rejoin the group to continue participating, in 
order to confirm their acceptance of the new patent requirements. There 
is a 45-day grace period starting today. After that, if you have not 
rejoined, the system will automatically remove you from the group. 
There's nothing I can do about that, so please be sure you rejoin before 

Some have already rejoined. You can check if you or your organization 
has rejoined via:

== Member representatives ==

If you represent a Member organization, your Advisory Committee 
representative must rejoin the group. When they do, all representatives 
of that organization are automatically rejoined. You can find your AC 
representative via: (Member-only link)

Please ask that person to use to rejoin, and refer them 
for context.

Some organizations require internal review before rejoining, that in 
some cases could take weeks. *Please initiate the process right away* to 
give your organization time to complete its due diligence within the 
grace period.

== Invited Experts and Team ==

Invited Experts and Team can rejoin themselves. Simply complete the form 

Let me know off list if you have questions or need additional pointers.
