If I join a Pillar Group, what is the time commitment involved?

Pillar Groups are key to creating, maintaining and sustaining the new efficiencies of the FoP, as well as continuing to achieve all future goals outlined in the Family Action Plan from year to year. To be clear, Pillar Groups will not only come together for the initial 6 month planning and preparation phase, but should become a permanent part of the Family structure. Each Family would have the option to create its own participation guidelines regarding length of service on the Pillar Group.
