Are there any issues we should consider before proceeding with the petition
to form the PHI SIG? Will there be costs associated with the SIG? I feel
like I don't have enough information at this point. Can someone clarify the
types of groups and their roles (SIGs, sections, caucuses)?

I'm getting some names interested in the Public Health Informatics SIG,
and will include in the letter to APHA. But need more, so please if you
haven't yet responded, please do so, and let others know. Thanks.
