Hi Sara,
The hope is not to discourage EU participants, but to represent RDA as a much larger global community, of which EU members are a single part. Highlighting EU opportunities on global announcements makes RDA seem unwelcoming to non-EU members who do not have access to similar opportunities. The announcements you are requesting only apply to a fraction of RDA members and IDW participants, and as such, are inappropriate for global announcements.
Many thanks!
Lynn

Hi Yolanda,
Ok for the first point , but honestly, there should be a global interest in having European participants to P13. What’s the point in removing the call for the Early Careers and Experts? This does not help promoting RDA mission globally, in our view. I am sorry, but we would like not to remove that sentence.
Tomorrow there is a public holiday here in Europe, I can send you the edits on Friday, not before unfortunately, I hope this won’t be an issue.

Sara –
Thanks for forwarding to me. I circulated the P13 poster within the US office and we respectfully request a few updates:
1 – Instead of “Organized by RDA and Drexel University”, replace to state “Organized by RDA-United States and Drexel University”
2 – Remove the reference to the RDA Europe Career program as it is a regional program and this poster’s objective is to promote a global event
I’ll send the Adoption poster to the printer today and await the above requested edits before I send the P13 one. Thank you!

Dear all
we have uploaded in this folder a new version of the Adoption poster https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ZFXHBwmecx7zpaWvbRB963rH9BOTjDcM/view?u…, with prominent focus on the Adoption process, and the poster dedicated to P13 https://drive.google.com/file/d/129XEvP31xIHL5L6xDgbKsl92kZ0Ey0Fl/view?u…, where we highlighted the opening of the call for session. We also included a save the date for the next Early Career and Expert RDA Europe call, since this is linked to P13, but less prominent. Should you still have some doubts about the way this is announced, I would suggest to hang these posters in the Early Careers and Experts corner.
@Yolanda: can you please send these two links to the local printer? And let us know about the invoice?
Don’t worry about the Nodes poster, if they’ve already printed the previous version, that’s fine.
We also took the liberty to create some “pins” to give to our European Early Careers and Experts to make them recognisable in the crowd. We’ve created a few for the US Fellows, too, we hope that you may like them.

Dear All,
First of all Sara, many thanks for the explanation.
To the whole secretariat, I would like to add an item for face to face discussion at the secretariat meeting on this so it is clarified once and for all and there is NO further misunderstanding.
We are all part of a global endeavour with different, important and essential regional contributions being made. All regional efforts go to support our overall vision and mission and I would like this to be at the forefront of the secretariat’s mind.
Many thanks
Hilary

Hi all, especially Lynn and Stefanie
It is not really about promoting a regional work, our intention is not to fly Europe everywhere around P12 – to confirm the global coverage we are shpping/printing there the following:
* 400 RDA Recommendation Cards,
* different RDA rollups and
* a Poster dedicated to P13 (Philadelphia),
which, if you like, will have greater impact on all sessions I believe.
I am sure we can find a compromise, for instance in the allocation of materials at the venue. I’ve understood there will be a EU Early Careers and Experts corner, so I presume RDA Europe Nodes & Grants poster can be put there. We can also slighlty change the Adoption Process & Programme poster title, since the upper part present the overall adoption process, while below we have the information about the adoption programme in Europe. And – please note that there is a quote by Shelley Stall from the American Geophysical Union in it, too.
But there is a financial model behind any support that goes towards a successful Plenary meeting, and in this case the contribution by Europe derives from a pot of money by RDA Europe 4 project.
The resources that contribute to RDA with an “RDA Europe 4 hat on” are paid by European taxpayers money – every outreach activity, whilst clearly needing to support the RDA guiding principles, also needs to demonstrate the European added value towards its funder, the European Commission. In case of financial audits (to which all of the European organisations involved/ RDA Europe beneficiaries may be due), their level of support (i.e. effor, i.e. funding) may be questioned. And, we also go through interim reviews where we are monitored by externals on your financial spending & resource activity clearly budgeted & claimed under RDA Europe 4.
Last comment, we are dedicating a lot of effort in pulling out adoption stories since they represent one of the major KPIs that we have to meet in Europe to demonstrate the value of RDA (at global level), so we are really looking forward to see a global – collaborative – adoption programme flying, with tangible cases of adoption from any regions. We are leading this activity in Europe, but we are really open to learn and get inspiration from any other region. We could also support the graphic design for any other US or Global focused RDA poster, we should still be in time for that.

Dear all,
I am also uncomfortable with putting so much focus on RDA Europe for the official RDA displays. RDA is already perceived as having a too-strong focus on Europe, and these reinforce that perception.
If these were meant as regular posters for the poster session, I’d feel more comfortable.
In any case, even for “regular” poster session posters, I think it needs to be much clearer that these are RDA Europe initiatives and not RDA initiatives.
For example, the nodes poster has “RDA Europe Nodes” as its title, but the subheadings only talk about “RDA nodes”, “national nodes”, and “RDA national nodes”.
There is no mention that only European institutions are eligible – in fact, the “Become a new node” bit in the blue box does not mention this at all, which I find misleading.
Just my 2 c…
Cheers,
Stefanie

Sara –
The EU notes poster was already sent to the event manager for printing. Should I ask them to print this latest version instead?
Let’s hold off on sending any others to them until they are finalized.
Thanks.
