Hi All,

Below you will find the note that was emailed out to the advisory council this afternoon as a follow up from yesterday’s first OpenMRS Advisory Council call. If you have previously reviewed the notes you may want to take a look again as they have been modified a bit to be more accurate. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.


Thank you to those who were able to join the first OpeMRS Advisory Council (AC) call yesterday. For those who were not able to join we look forward to speaking with you next time and hope you find the notes, recording and attached links helpful.

Also, we would like to make this meeting recurring at the same time every other month and send out an invite as soon as possible. From the feedback we received from most people it appears that Wednesday’s @10am ET typically work for people. This would make the next meeting Wednesday, July 6th @10am ET. If there is anyone who is in strong disagreement with this timing of this reoccurrence please let me know by Tuesday, May 10th as we will then be sending out an event invite to the group.
