    Dear Leif,

    Sustainability was discussed at the OA(B) call yesterday and also it seems elsewhere, e.g. Council.

    Perhaps it would be good if these efforts could join up (and become one?)

    In any case, I volunteered for an eventual OAB sub-group on this topic.

    It was also unclear to me whether the 3 items below are just examples, or whether they are the only items that you would like input on. (I hope the former).

    Cheers, Jamie

    Dear Jamie,

    Thank you very much for your input! Unfortunately I could not join you yesterday for the OA meeting.

    I expect your as well as others strong input in the section “Comments and input from European RDA Organisational Members - RDA Organisational Members”.

    To stir up some discussion we created as an example the 3 bullet point lists. The discussion must of course be must broader but as you said“ just examples”.

    I don’t have a clear picture yet how to structure this as we clearly have two overlapping things to discuss:

    1) The sustainability of the RDA activities (Council participation, WG/IG participation, implementations…) in Europe
    2) The sustainability of the RDA Global

    Thanks,

    — leif

    As our Secretary-General has expressed a clear view on how we
    express the time & date of RDA events in future (see
    https://www.rd-alliance.org/what-time-it-rda)

    I thought I should confirm, for myself if not anyone else, that we
    are expecting today's meeting to take place at 1200-1400 UTC.
    Is that correct?

    Hi Kevin,

    The meeting today is 13:00 - 15:00 CEST (Center European Summer Time), which should be quite well standardised.

    I am not sure how this converts to UTC but I suspect that is 11:00 - 13:00 UTC.
