    Hi all. The July newsletter is located at https://www.rd-alliance.org/july-news-idw-updates-tab-elections-group-up….
    Please review and edit as you see necessary. I did a quick review for formatting (spacing, new windows for hyperlinks, etc.), but will do a more thorough review immediately before distribution.
    Please keep in mind, we still don’t have articles for the Member Spotlight, TAB Elections or Biodiversity discipline – but I think we have plenty of other content if we want to move forward with distribution without them. Stefanie, Lynn – let me know your preference.
    Thank you.

    Hi all,
    A few notes –
    * On the booking travel for IDW – can we release a high-level schedule so folks can see the dates they need to include? For RDA this would include the TAB/Chairs mtg and a note about placeholders for co-located events.
    * Can we also add a TBD announcement for the poster call – saying there will be one and to keep an eye out?
    * I removed the software source code review – it comes out of community review on Sunday.
    * The Data Science schools folks have asked us for additional amplification – the due date for their work is the 18th, would be great if we can include it?
    * The TAB election bit should be almost ready – Stefanie and Sara, are we good to go with the form?
    Its already pretty full imo, I am not feeling like we are missing content atm.
    Many thanks!!

    Dear all,
    I tested the form – if anyone else could do so (perhaps on a phone, I tried
    on a Windows 7 PC), that would be great.
    Re the high-level schedule for P12, yes, please put this in and publish it
    on the RDA (and IDW, if possible) Web sites, the sooner the better!
    (See also my separate email to Secretariat).
    Unfortunately, I have not had any luck with a member focus piece so far –
    the person I asked was unable to do this at short notice. She will
    provide a few paragraphs for the next newsletter.
    Cheers,
    Stefanie

    Dear All,
    I agree with all the suggestions and would ask that the group updates be
    moved up to the top of the newsletter … before or after the IDW update.
    Many thanks
    Hilary

    Dear all,
    I agree that the group updates should be at or near the top, with the IDW
    update and the Call for Tab Nominations (
    https://www.rd-alliance.org/call-tab-nominations-2018), which still needs
    to be included.
    If anyone could write something interesting about the Call for Tab
    Nominations for inclusion in the newsletter, that would be great. I can do
    it, but then it won’t be very exciting.
    Thanks!
    Cheers,
    Stefanie
