Fwd: OSGeo Project report 2017 - Invitation to attend next Board meeting

Angelos Tzotsos

Hi all,

Since I have not heard back from the project officer, I am forwarding this to the developers mailing list.

Best,
Angelos

Dear Greg,

During the OSGeo general meeting (AGM) in Boston FOSS4G this year, OSGeo 
Projects were asked to provide a slide [1] with the project status report.
Since some of the projects did not manage to attend or provide feedback, 
the OSGeo Board of Directors has started an effort to reach out to these 
projects and ask them to attend a Board meeting to provide this report.

You are the Project Officer of FDO, so I would like to ask you to attend 
the next board meeting [2] [3] if possible. Would you be available to 
attend?

On behalf of the OSGeo Board,
Best regards,
Angelos
