RDA OAB - New document and postponement of next meeting

Dear OAB colleagues,
New document
Attached is a document that Leif, Fortis and I have been drafting which brings together various things we have been discussing about organisational membership.
It is also in the Filedepot at https://www.rd-alliance.org/filedepot/folder/157
It describes what Organisational Membership is, the OA and the OAB. It also proposes a process for OAB elections.

Dear Leif,
No, that's not really what I meant at all regarding funding.
The link I was trying to make was between EU (and presumably "matching" NSF/ANDS/other) funding in 2015/2016. And possible "sustainable" funding after this period possibly coming from Organisational member contributions.
I was most definitely not suggesting using EU funds from this call or any other to pay to Organisational membership fees (which would hardly lead to a sustainable model).
I will tell people who ask me that they should contact you and Peter.
Thanks a lot, Jamie

Re: [rda-oab] OAB & H2020 EINFRA-3-2014 "Towards global data -einfrastructures - RDA"

Dear all,
Since the publication of EINFRA-3-2014 and other calls last week, a number of people have asked me how "we" plan to respond. In addition, I have seen it discussed on a number of mailing lists.
Whilst perhaps an RDA/E issue, it is linked to our discussion of "funding" and Organisational Membership / the use of such funds.
Questions such as "how will the proposal be prepared?", "who should / could be part of it?" have already come up.
I believe that it would be useful - and would also save effort - to have a clear and transparent statement on this.

Re: [rda-oab] Org. membership in the RDA as a "subscription" / benefits of...

Dear Larry,
Thank you, that illuminates the logic of the "subscription" model for
me. I think the RDA would also have to be mindful about the "delivered
product" not being something that includes output from RDA working
groups, which will likely have participants from non-member
institutions, that then becomes available only to "subscriber"
institutions.
Aside from that, if both "subscription" and "membership" are to be
options for an organization, perhaps the membership could /include /the
