Re: [rda-oab][rda-oab-private] Next OAB meeting, Tuesday 12 May at 13:00 UTC

Dear colleagues,
I have also a Strategic committee at the same time, due to the time difference between countries that was impossible to manage for me.
I will do my best to be present but for the time being, it is really a problem.
Sorry for this issue,
Best regards,
