Dear Co-chairs
I was wondering if you have been able to come to a decision as to the best way to move forward with the Geospatial IG? Last summer it did seem possible that the group could be revived but perhaps you have reached a different outcome in the meantime.
Could you kindly update us?
Many thanks,
RDA Secretariat

many good thoughts here indeed!
But essentially IMHO it boils down to:

Dear Co-chairs
We are contacting you with regard to your RDA Geospatial IG, more specifically to seek clarification on the Group’s level of activity. We note that the Group has not had a working session at an RDA Plenary since Plenary 11 and we have not seen any activity on the group page for some time.
The RDA wants groups to be active during their lifespan. At this point, your group looks like it is inactive and may need to be retired. However, we would be happy to support you in re-invigorating the group if you think this makes sense.
Please respond to this email by 12th August 2021 and let us know your preference. Of course, if you have any questions, we would be happy to answer them.
Thank you very much!
Best wishes
RDA Secretariat
