Hi everyone,
Last year at FOSS4G I ran an Annual General Meeting that lasted a  
couple hours.  Personally, I thought it was great to hear about the  
interesting mix of reports from local chapters, projects and  
committees.  (I realised at the last moment that sponsors would have  
been great to hear from too!)

I'd be interested in feedback about the meeting from those of you who  
were in attendance and if you had any more ideas for this year.  Last  
meeting was 90+ minutes which can seem long, but with the great mix  
of work going on it the community - I felt it was worth it.  How  
about you?  There would seem to be no way to shorten it since our  
communities have only continued to grow - projects, sponsors and  
more.  There's a lot to talk about too - occasionally people suggest  
topics that warrant discussion at such an event.  Perhaps we need  
more time to talk about some ideas or make decisions.

Would love to hear your ideas.  If you're keen to help, also let me  

Take care,
