Helsinki follow-up & OAB elections

Dear Organisational Assembly members,
It was great to see everyone who made it to Helsinki to attend Plenary 14.
This was a wonderful event, and it was a delight to see you.
A few points of action coming out of that meeting:
1) You will have seen an email on behalf of Laura Witcoff. Laura is looking
into resource development avenues for RDA-US, which should also benefit the
larger community. Please email your responses to the following to

OA photo

Dear all,
Here is the OA photo arranged from Helsinki on Friday afternoon. Next time I will try to include it in the agenda (as last (or first) item) to maximise presence in case no photos of all RDA groups are arranged.
It was nice to see many of you in Helsinki!
Best wishes,

Further details on who they are, what they are doing and how to interact with them:
Dr. Laura Wittcoff and Eliot Dreiband, MSW Intern, are attending RDA’s Plenary
#14 for the explicit purpose of gathering anonymous information on the

Change of room: Palaver (in Dipoli-ground floor)

Dear all,
An important update: The OA meeting has to move to another room (as I check and the assigned room was not big enough). The new room is Palaver.
This is located on the ground floor of Dipoli; you have to pass through the cloak area and then you will see the Palaver sign.
Best wishes,

Re: [tab][rda-oab] For Action: Please make the final Plenary Pathways for Helsinki available on the website

Ah, OK. I didn't realise that is what B1, B2 etc meant. If it is possible to add additional information such as 'Breakout 1 (23rd, 11:30-1:00)' in the place of 'B1' and so on, it would significantly help with planning. I am sure a lot of ppl are assessing every session against their calendar because of how much is going on -- room numbers can be found on the fly.
