Against the interest of our members to take part in flourishing projects in Argentina, the CCAC has created four working groups: Mining, Energy, Entrepreneurial Social Responsibility and Human Resources.

Those groups generate a lot of very relevant interactions. They are essential to our members because they allow the sharing of experiences and useful information in their respective fields. Each group receives many guests, offers common strategies and acts as a channel of communication to other public o private institutions.

Each group is headed by a coordinator and follows an agreed agenda during regular meetings.
