RE: Quarterly Plenary Meeting- Q2 09
As per our 2009 strategic goals, the Steering Group of the DataPortability Project will be responsible for quarterly plenary meetings to engage the community more with what we are doing. The plenary is an important part of the DataPortability Project’s governance framework, which among other things, elects the Steering Group and holds it accountable.
All members of the plenary are invited to this meeting, where the Steering Group can explain how we are tracking against the goals and question Steering members on the DataPortability Project’s future direction and the relevance of work being performed. It also is an opportunity for the community to make binding decisions on behalf of the Project, despite being removed from the day to day operation of it. As with all DataPortability Project meetings, this is open to anyone to participate.
The meeting will take the place on July 21st at 16:00 – 17:00 UTC. As decided in our last plenary meeting meeting hours will rotate quarterly to accommodate our global plenary. Please refer to the meeting agenda page for details about your region, and feel free to add an agenda item.
To be a member of the plenary, all you need to do is “opt-in” into the vote mailing list, by stating your intention to be a member.
We love forward to your participation.
- DataPortability Project Steering Group
