Gaborone Organisational Assembly meeting update and venue

05 Nov 2018
Groups audience: 

Dear all,
For those of you present in Botswana, the Organisational Assembly will take in the first floor of the Gaborone International Conference Centre (GICC). In order to have some more space (in case multiple members from Council join), we are trying to move from the Operations Boardroom to the San-Ta-Wani Boardroom (as you enter from outside, take the stairs to the left). Yolanda will be checking with the local organisers tomorrow and come back to us. @Francoise: I hope that the lift does work ok.
Note that the meeting starts at 15:45 which is in the middle of the coffee break and finishes at 17:30 when the Business plenary starts downstairs (so we have to finish on time, even 5' before).
For those of you remotely, connection details are available below. We cannot guarantee the quality of the connection, but the plan is to connect to gotomeeting (and there are on-going efforts to improve the situation).
The updated agenda with venue info and connection details is available at https://www.rd-alliance.org/group/rda-organisational-assembly/wiki/gabor...
Best wishes,
Fotis

    Dear remote participants,
    There is an issue with gotomeeting (asking us a verification code) and we are trying to fix this. Please bear with us a few minutes more to see if we will be able to solve this.
    Apologies for this,
