Hi Alex,
I think probably you’ve got the wrong “Chris” here sorry. 
I guess you wanted Chris Brown of JISC, CC’d for you now.

Dear Juan and Christopher,
My name is Alexandra Kokkinaki and I work in the National Oceanography Centre in UK. I am the technical lead of the NERC Vocabulary Server and co-chair of the RDA VSSIG Interest group. I became aware that some local RDA groups e.g. France, are funding chairs of IG or WG to participate in the pleanaries.
I would be really grateful if our local RDA-UK group could fund my RDA registration fee?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Kind regards
Dr Alexandra Kokkinaki
