The advantage of email is that I can fit it in around the work I need to do (including reading it during corporate conference calls.)  In one case I have had to dramatically reduce my effective participation in the WG because most of the work moved to the conference calls.

If you "try to monitor" these working groups, it sounds like you aren't an active participant.   The meetings are supposed to be minuted, so you ought to be able to monitor them by reading the minutes.

Do you think we should optimize working groups for getting work done, or for being monitored?   Or have I misunderstood what you mean when you say "try to monitor"?
