Hi Luigi, all,
I think you can now replace the kangaroo image on the P15 page with the slider image, at least.
Hilary, is it ok now to use the text from the Google doc for the P15 page? (The ARDC comms manager suggested one small change in the Google doc, so please use the latest version).

Dear All,
The slider has been published on the website with the official logos, following all the guidelines provided.
As for the page of the RDA 15th Plenary Meeting, I haven’t received any feedback nor further instructions on how to proceed, therefore it is still in the “original” status.
I will wait for feedback.
Thank you,

Dear All,
Attached are the CSIRO brand Guidelines, the logos in a zip and some instructions from CSIRo directly:
I refer to your request to use CSIRO’s logo to acknowledge CSIRO as a Conference Sponsor of the Research Data Alliance (RDA) 15th Plenary meeting, scheduled for March 2020.
I am pleased to grant you permission to use CSIRO’s logo on the following terms and conditions:
* The organising group may use CSIRO’s logo on RDA plenary brochures and conference slideware.
* The organising group must use a correct format of the CSIRO logo (official logo file attached – no modification to logo file is permitted).
* The organising group must place CSIRO’s name and logo in accordance with CSIRO’s brand guidelines (attached).
* The organising group must not use, or permit to be used, CSIRO’s name or logo in any other manner without prior approval from CSIRO.
* CSIRO may withdraw its consent to use its name or logo at any time at its absolute discretion.
* This permission is valid for the end of March 2020 only. Any significant change to CSIRO’s involvement or requested use of its name and/or logo requires new approval from CSIRO.
* An electronic copy of finished creative designs should be sent to us for our records, where possible.
Attached are the appropriate official CSIRO logo files to be used for this purpose.
Can the Comms team, together with the graphic designers and the web experts, please work together to ensure that we adhere to the guidelines – also using correct ARDC logo (as per Stefanie’s email).
As soon as the correct graphic package is ready, as per my ticket last week, please publish on the web and social media channels.
Please give this the highest priority tomorrow, Monday 29 July so I can access and use the graphics and announcement while in Australia.
Many thanks
