5. Managing Group Owners
When you create a Group, you are the owner of that Group. You also have the ability to give other members ownership (so that they have special permissions within the group) and to remove owners if needed.
NOTE: A group requires at least one owner who's Minga role is Owner, Teacher, or Manager. If you are the single owner of a group, you are not able to leave that group without assigning at least one other authorized owner.
