Planning your Plenary? Checkout the Pathways!

Dear RDA OA members,
I am pleased to let you know that the RDA Plenary planning aid, "Plenary
Pathways", is now out and available for your perusal!
This planning aid was put together by TAB (thank you!) and originally
piloted during the last plenary for the benefit of the OA. The decision was
taken at the OA and OAB meetings during that plenary to make this tool
available to the broad membership of RDA.

Re: [rda-oab] Organisation Members clustering for your comments

Thanks Fotis,
One issue this raises is for orgs like CANARIE, that belong in 2 categories: Infrastructures and Policy and Funding Agencies. I don’t think that is a big issue, and it is more one for the orgs themselves, as they will have to decide which category to be listed in.
