Dear RDA Secretariat and members of the RPRD IG and Domain Repositories IG,
On behalf of the co-chairs of both groups who organized the session, I
would like to express our appreciation to you and the TAB for accepting our
joint session for RDA VP18 and for providing suggestions for improvement.
We also would like to invite others who are interested in speaking
about Cooperative
Innovation Among Resilient Repository Platforms for Open Research Data

to contact us within the next couple of weeks so that we can include them
on the agenda.
