Dear OSGeo -

Over the last several months, the OSGeo community provided significant input into the OGC. This input included issues, concerns, and strengths of the OGC processes and covered a range of topics ranging from better public engagement, transparency, documentation, knowledge management and more.

We would like to continue the dialogue to improve the OGC with the goal of enhancing the value of OGC contributions to the community and to our Members. As part of this process, there are going to be a series of net meetings.

The "Ideas for OGC" (Ideas4OGC) effort aims to collect feedback, ideas, critiques, and comments to help us develop and improve the OGC. After 3 successful members meetings this week we will now run 3 open public meetings on 11th July to hear the thoughts and ideas from both members and non-members. 

If you would like to participate please register here https://portal.opengeospatial.org/public_ogc/register/130711ideas.php

Most importantly, if know people who should participate please forward this email to them!

Registration details can be found here http://external.opengeospatial.org/twiki_public/Ideas4OGC/WebHome along with our public wiki.

We are looking forward to your contribution!
