- EURALO will organize a networking and outreach event after the GA (coordinated with Jean-Jacques Sahel); it is an open event and is also an opportunity for other RALO members to participate. The event will invite ISOC Europe and will circulate a special invitation for European chapters to participate in the networking event.
- Question from Maureen Hilyard regarding support issues for the outreach & engagement programs identified – if specific programs are identified, it can be submitted as part of the budget request or FY 17. O&E SC can help identify appropriate programs. There will be discussion with Xavier Calvez for members to understand how this can be done.
