Should be on the call, but one “agenda update”

Our “update meeting” following AMIA (Nov 16 afternoon, Nov 17 morning, in Chicago) isn’t meant to replace Leadership Camp. We anticipate having a leadership camp this winter.

The update meeting is an interim update on OpenMRS, a chance for those at AMIA to get together in person, and a chance for anyone else interested to attend, in person, by phone, or through some as yet undetermined video technology (hangouts?).

We can go over the draft agenda briefly tomorrow, and the current attendee list (and the doodle poll where it lives). All that will be in the meeting minutes. Actually, it’s here, now:

the draft agenda is here: doodle poll to declare in person or phone attendance is here:

Thanks for the reminder to address this - and the prompt to do so in talk.

Maybe I’m not needed on the call tomorrow, except to prompt people like @Hamish to declare Yes/Phone/No on the poll!
