Annual General Meeting 2011
Venue / Timing
- @FOSS4G2011, Friday September 16th, 4pm to 5pm, Grand Ballroom
- 1 hour long
The Annual General Meeting for OSGeo is open to everybody. Due to the very limited schedule and many important topics that will be presented there will not be much time for discussion on the floor but hopes are high that many of the ideas coming up during the AGM will be discussed on their respective lists in the coming weeks and months.
The AGM itself will be a succession of lightning talks (presentations limited to three or four minutes) given by you in your role as Local Chapter representative, Chair of a committee, representative of a software project, OSGeo director or administrator or whatever else makes up OSGeo. If you feel like you have to say something please add yourself to the list. This list will be closed on the 12th (one week from now) to be orderd and cleaned out. Please come to the OSGeo booth in the exhibition area after this to get final instructions, upload your slides (if you need any) and get acquainted with the moderator.
Please enter your name and sign with your Wiki user or full name. Additionally please send an email to seven[a]arnulf.us for confirmation and so that we can contact you back. The talks will be reordered and cleaned out by the moderator prior to the session, simply add yourself as you go.
